In her previous series of photographs, "Living Together" Vibeke Tandberg montaged together two pictures of herself with the aid of a computer, resulting in a single image depicting what looked like twin siblings interacting.
Fundamentally questioning the notion of originality (in its doubling), Tandberg's work also critiqued photography's myth of objectivity (through its carefully meditated composition). Though these issues remain, her newest series, "Line," brings to the fore concerns with the status of the subject. It is in this psychoanalytic register that the five new works at Andrea Rosen mark a decisive shift from an aesthetic of primary narcissism to one of secondary narcissism.
