Letícia Ramos

The Brazilian artist Letícia Ramos presents a new series of photographic works along with video projections for her first solo show in Portugal at Galeria Filomena Soares.

Balística líquida

Jeff Wall’s Milk (1984) is one of the most intriguing images of contemporary photography history, and also a (unexpected) door access to the most recent set of works by Letícia Ramos displayed at Galeria Filomena Soares.

Besides the complex psychological and social burden frequently associated to this image (and to his work in general), Milk is a starting point to an important test for Wall – Photography and Liquid Intelligence (1989) in which he discourses about what would be the “liquid intelligence of photography” in counterpoint with what he denominates as “mechanic” or “dry.”

What in the first case corresponds to an erratic and experimental character of the image – on which the dream of stopping the light movement in the plate still wasn’t considered (unless on a fantastic way), on the second case the captation, preservation and dissemination gestures of the image are codified, being the founders of modern vision on photography.

In A Grande Onda, formal studies about photographic material and construction of images without any scenography display cohabit – the goal being less scenography and more photographic paper surfaces. [Adapted from the original text by Marta Mestre for the occasion of A Grande Onda]

Letícia Ramos born in Santo António da Patrulha, Brazil, in 1976; lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil. She graduated in Architecture and Urbanism at the UFRG, in Rio Grande do Sul and in Cinema at the FAAP in São Paulo.

Her artistic research focuses on creating photographic apparatus adequate for capturing and reconstructing movement and presenting it through video, photography and installation. With a particular interest in the science of fiction, chance, as well as experimentation with photography and the artistic process, are directions which can be seen in her work.

She has been presenting solo and group exhibitions in several public and private institutions around the world, such as: Tate Modern, London (2007); Centro de Arte Pivô, São Paulo (2013); Itaú Cultural, São Paulo (2009); Centro Cultural São Paulo (2010); Museu Colecção Berardo, Lisbon (2014) ; Instituto Tokie Ohtake, São Paulo (2014) and CAPC – Musée d’Art Contemporain, Bordeaux, France.

Letícia has won important prizes and artistic grants such as Prémio Marc Ferréz and participated in several artistic residences, including The Artic Circle (2011), aboard a sailboat towards the North Pole. The photographic work produced during this expedition was the winner of the prize Brasil Fotografia – pesquisas contemporâneas (2012). In 2013, she has participated in the Islan Session program of the 9th Mercosul Biennial.
