Post-Bodies:
Women of the Post-Human Age in the Art of Eva Rorandelli

"These women appear frozen and remote in their timeless beauty, their faces distant from every emotion, not touched by wrinkles, nor shadows, nor any attempt to smile. In reality, as always, it is not possible to separate the figure from the context, and, in the case of these “engineered” figures (backgrounds are created digitally and then painted) by Florentine artist Eva Rorandelli, we must broaden our vision and also analyze the entire backdrop: a mosaic-collage obtained with images of technological relics, cables and remnants of consumer electronics, a world of nano-tools characteristic of today's techno-reality. Perhaps, then, these beautiful women are robots or androids, post-human bodies, with gears and bytes instead of cells and blood vessels..."

— From the essay by Elisabetta Bovo (translated from Italian)
