Sandra Ramos

Born in 1969 in Cuba
Lives and works in Havane, Cuba

In my recent works I try to articulate a visual dialogue that expresses the arbitrariness of thoughts, images, perceptions, contrasts and uncertainties that we find in our daily life in the contemporary world.
To express these ideas in a visual work, I use my personal and social memory documented through video and photographs, taking advantage of the kaleidoscopic deformation of the images and their instantaneous speed, exalting the opposition among materials, images and concepts like that of wealth and poverty, development, underdevelopment, abundance, scarcity, and by playing with perceptions as time-space, near and far, here and there, past and present

My work, settlesamong private and public, personal and collective. The viewer that invades the intimate space of my mind also participates of many of these experiences and memoirs that match to shared environment.
