为奥黛丽.赫本找错 / Mistaken Audrey Hepburn

阿比.瓦尔堡毕生致力于一门无名之学,在美学和形式主义的外围建立图像的社会意志。另一条线索是奥黛丽.赫本,她占据着大众的记忆痕迹。作为社会记忆的一部分,它们可靠吗?作为图像的赫本可靠吗?我们不妨换一个方式,给赫本看看面相,给她放大一张有关她的经典照片。如果这些也算是图像,那么诚挚的献给瓦尔堡,也给赫本。


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)
