Letícia Ramos’s 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, she developed complex geographical novels in some of her series, such as ERBF, Bitácora and Vostok. Chance, as well as experimentation with photography and the artistic process, are directions which can be seen in her work.

Her works have been exhibited in art spaces such as the Tate Modern, the Pivô – Art and Research Center, São Paulo, Itaú Cultural, São Paulo, the São Paulo Cultural Center, Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro, the Berardo Collection Museum, Lisbon, the Tomie Ohtake Institute, São Paulo, and CAPC – Museum of Contemporary Art, Bordeaux, France.

In 2014, she was awarded the Moreira Salles Institute Photography Grant, and used it to develop a research called “MICROFILM”, which ended up winning the BES Photo international award. She received the Video Art Prize, given by the Joaquim Nabuco Foundation, for the development of a new project called GRÃO [GRAIN].

She was one of the finalists of PIPA 2015 Award and was nominated again for PIPA 2016.

She recently received the Arts Grant of Botín Foundation in Spain for the development of the project Historia Universal de los Terremotos.
