Exhibition: Welcome Her, by Yapci Ramos

From 22 March to 14 August 2019 at Casa África
Exposición: Welcome Her, de Yapci Ramos. Del 22 de marzo al 14 de agosto de 2019 en Casa África

Yapci Ramos opened her first solo exhibition in the Canary Islands in 2018: Show Me (TEA Tenerife Espacio de las Artes). This was the first of the artist’s exhibition trilogy completed by the projects Know Us (San Antonio Abad - CAAM) and the exhibition currently housed in Casa África: Welcome Her.

The exhibition Welcome Her shows the strong bond that Yapci Ramos maintains with Africa, but also displays her ability to observe and hence understand territory, space and nature, in creative processes marked by openness to the new and acceptance and welcome of the unexpected.

The three installations that make up Welcome Her explore displacement as a drift, inhabiting a changing world in continuous transit and full of uncertainties, to lead us to a broader conceptual framework of nature, territory, history and the body. In these artistic works, Ramos approaches the concept of movement - literally in some cases and symbolically in others - through the movements of women’s bodies in the dances of Malawi, with allusions to migratory flows and the movement of borders due to geopolitical conflicts, but also presenting the effects of the uncontrollable forces of nature.

Yapci Ramos trained in photography at the Central Saint Martins College of Arts & Design in London and in creative documentary at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. Her work has been displayed in exhibitions in galleries, art centres and national and international fairs and festivals. She lives and works between Barcelona, Tenerife and New York, spending time in different cities, many of them in Africa where she undertakes many of her projects.

As always, access to our exhibitions is free and you can visit on weekdays between 9am and 6pm. This exhibition will open on 22 March at 7:30pm and will continue until the summer closing.
