My name is Ana and
I am a love addict. I have always been trapped in a loop of rejecting the
partners who want me and insecurely attaching to the ones who don’t.
This work is a
personal investigation into understanding my dysfunctional intimacy. From
interviewing past lovers and family members, to going to love-addiction
meetings, to reading neuroscientific and psychological journals, I exhaustively
scrutinized my fears and desires. I am ripped, revealed, and re-signified
fragments of my pain and self-sabotaging struggle to control love into
collages, photograms, and photographs. Parallel to this process, I also collected
anonymous data about our collective fears, desires, and memories regarding the
experience of falling in and out of love.
