Replica | Author: Rita Lino

Replica suggests a new reading of the body and the model as a pure image, a pure tool, without referring to any representative identity, hereby ignoring today’s contemporary society of what the self should be.

In Lino’s case she is the model, the operator / photographer, the subject and the image at the same time. She is in complete control. She found a way to remove herself from representation and reduced her own body to a pure object and image, almost like a machine. Replica is a manifestation of the artist’s understanding of her role in front of and behind the camera.
