Unlike other languages, photography certifies what it portrays, attesting its existence. Aware of the documentary potential of the mechanical vehicle, Enrica Magnolini uses it to give a legacy of her own experience, opting for black and white films only, using the manual printing procedure in the darkroom, choices which might bring back memory to an ancient ritual and seem to give a greater authenticity to her aim.
The series unfolds through those places the artist considers to be representative of the stages that have marked the path of her individual growth: may they be related to people with whom she shared experiences or to circumstances in which she was, traveling away from home.
The investigation, which sees her as the protagonist of every shot, transcends the mere recording of the environment and assumes a strong autobiographical connotation: the evanescent presence of the body in the space symbolizes the transience of the I-narrator, which shows itself without veils, keeping its face hidden, in order to give the viewer a more authentic personality, lacking transient conditioning to let emerge only the part of the instant in which she is eternalized.
Focused on the introspective research of the author, the images point to a timeless dimension and are not conceived for being read in chronological order: similar to solitary monads, placed side by side, they are only relevant to their singularity and remain suspended between two worlds: the apparent one and the real one. Animated by a metaphysical poetry, the project reveals those aspects of being that the eye cannot see, and it is meant to have a follow up. It draws inspiration from the work of Duane
Michals, who excels in photographing the invisible, as well as that of Francesca Woodman, devoted to the expression of her identity.
