PORTRAITS: SERIAL DOUBLES 

The work on Serial Doubles began in the late 1990s.
Sorting out photographs in the possession of portrayed persons, Ana recorded their changes through earlier images and those from the times spent with them.
Different guises were than transferred into drawings on transparent materials, foils or tracing papers. Overlapping these materials she mapped and followed the journeys of her friends building an a topography of their changing psychological and existential situations.
This serial is also a possibility for portrayed individuals to have an insights of shifting ideas about themselves. Serial Doubles explores how the structures of societies affect us personally considering our shifting of notions on identity and diverse theories of belonging. In this series, Ana is giving  attention to individual voices confronted with ideas of identity formed in group dynamics within particular societal shifts, and  explores how we can find new points of connectivity.
