A native of Lima\, P eru and currently based in New York\, Ana De Orbegoso was born with a passi on to express herself.  Paralleling Narratives will explore De Orbeg oso’s intricate visual forms of expression by juxtaposing a selection of he r series from the past and present. Each series\, more so projects\, depict popular iconography and staged situations using photography and several fo rms of mixed media with subjects that populate her world. Although the proj ects are different in their executed style\, all carry out performative ele ments that are staged rather than captured\, “… to seduce and beckon your h uman sensation” as De Orbegoso so eloquently states.

\n

Whether it’s a Greek boy over-reaching his ambition in the series\, Icarus and the Myth of the Fallen Angel (2012)\; a fabricat ed world in DisUtopia exemplifying the current social condition where reality is blurred with artificiality\; an individual who c reates pseudo barriers and identities to avoid realizing his/her true self in The Invisible Wall (2002-04)\; or visual depictions of the ongoing inner-dialogues we establish within ourselves in her other series\ , Intra (2002)\; to De Orbegoso\, each project is simply the final product of an arduous process initiated by a concept stemmed from exp loring the individual or social-psyche.  Placing them in one space\, transl ates them as paralleling narratives in an attempt to transfer the visual to an actual dialogue. 

\n
