Arte para Bogota

It was a collective exhibition with the artist Luis Fernando Roldán.  The project intended to use a game of chance to make a reticle plan in order to establish in a chaotic way, yet under certain rules or guidelines, the place to plant a tree for every victim of violence in Bogotá in 1997. There were 7800 victims that year, and 7800 trees to be planted in Bogotá using the game’s diagram.  This work was finalist.

Resguardo Maticuru

This project has not been in an exhibition yet. The artist worked for more than 3 years with 40 Coreguaje indigenous people from a shelter in Caquetá, who had been displaced by violence, minor recruitment by illegal armed groups and struggles over land for coca cultivation. The intention was to work with the families in Bogotá making necklaces with objects they had brought from their land, with what they had collected from nature and their land that is now ailing due to fumigations. They made 25 necklaces out of feathers, seeds and bullet shells. They were placed in velvet boxes as though they were elegant jewels. The aim was to make an exhibition to show the spectator the Maticuru’s real situation, who barely speak Spanish, who barely understand the city’s language and who live a war that does not belong to them.

Photographic Production

These pictures are part of the author’s photography archive. They are from the moment when she started out in Paris, where she made sceneries and photographic production for photographers such as Mario Testino and Mads Morgensen, in publications of the Rizzoli Publishing House in Milan and Hachette Filipacchi in Paris.  Since 1999 Ana has found great interest in the concept of dress, in its tailoring and in its story as language and expression within the female gender.

Health Battalion

In this project, the artist worked with 6 soldiers wounded in combat by anti-personnel mines or objects. She made “memory and reconstruction” workshops in the Health Battalion and later on developed her work based on the images and common places of these soldiers, who are now blind as a result of anti-personnel mines. This same workshop was held later on with peasants who where wounded by anti-personnel mines. The images of River-Nature-Tire-Ball are connected to one another and are almost the same between soldiers and peasants.
