Ana participates at various solo and group exhibitions, participative projects, and also works on project regarding the book as an artistic expression, creating a non commercial book Collection of False Memories, promoted in 2014 and 2016. Artist’s statement: “This zine is an attempt to deliver a short but wellrounded visual story in a limited space. The theme is summarized in the title Following the Traces according to which are marked and written different, seemingly contrary states of the human with regards to nature and society. So the aim of every page is to be able to stay on its own as a work independent of the others. The challenge consists in the selection of the relations that are presented and examined: following the traces of guilt and innocence, following the traces of society - nature, following the traces of old age - experience... All of which in the same time are causes and carriers of some mark, trace, footprint.“
