Girl with Butterflies

Girl with Butterflies is one of four video works by Francesca Fini in the Su Misura collection, which explores the concept of contemporary identity by combining digital image-making and manipulation with historic portraiture.Girl with Butterflies is a digital manipulation of the painting Portrait of a Young Lady, by Isaack Luttichuys (1656).

I immerse the original picture in the murky liquid of a nightmare, in which many blue butterflies rest on the girl's face, distorting her features with the beat of their wings. The eternal fixity, the intact beauty of a classic portrait becomes the carrier of the ephemeral and fragile nature of contemporary identity. My irrational phobia of butterflies is here exorcised in a sort of liberating rite.” - Francesca Fini.
