为奥黛丽.赫本找错 / Mistaken Audrey Hepburn


Aby Warburg was devoted to an anonymous study, building up visual ethos outside aesthetics and formalism. Audrey Hepburn, who is omnipresent in the path of collective memory, is the other hint. Being part of social recollection, are they reliable? Is Hepburn reliable as an image? Let’s switch to another context: tell Hepburn’s fortune by reading her face, by enlarging a classic photograph of hers. If these are all counted as images, then they are sincerely dedicated to Warburg, to Hepburn as well.(Translated by Tsao Yidi)
