statement

Enrique Ramírez. Born in 1979 in Santiago, Chile. He has a master degree in Contemporary art and New Media in Studio National of art contemporain Le Fresnoy, France. Enrique Ramirez’s work could be described as poetic incursions towards the humanization of contemporary dystopias. His film-installations and photography deals with the politics of exodus and exile and the discontinuity of memory, but for Ramirez this always means an arduous search into subjective imaginary. The vast landscapes that often appear in his works are conceived as geo-poetic spaces for imagination, territories open for vision and deambulation. The mood of the images is a contemplative one; the landscape, the breeze, the water, the sand, they all seem to work together in an effort to place a subjective view.

Education  1996 – 2001 Popular music studies 1999 – 2002 Audiovisual communication, BA in Film Studies – Instituto de artes y comunicación ARCOS, Chile. 2007 – 2009 Master in Contemporary Art – Studio National des arts contemporains, Le Fresnoy, France.
