Mudam Luxembourg presents Worlds in Motion, a thematic presentation of works from the Mudam Collection that embody movement as a physical and perceptual event.
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.
