Sara Ramo works directly with the elements that define immediate daily life in order to reconfigure them into strange and foreign presences. The alteration of the natural order of things is not a simple formal exercise, for the artist this represents the possibility to create new structures of sensitivity. Ramo participates in a vast heritage from a cultural tradition that has confronted the utilitarian and scientific perspective of the modern world; incorporating notions from mysticism, mythology and magic, the artist questions the relationship between human beings and objects that are only determined by utility. Fracturing this paradigm, new narrative possibilities emerge, involving spatial and temporal consequences.

Her recent exhibitions include: La Caída y otras formas de vida at Alcalá 31, Madrid, Spain, 2019; lindalocaviejabrujacurated by Manuel Borja-Villel, Programa Fisuras, Reina Sofía Museum, 2019; Cartas na Mesa, Galpão – Fortes d’Aloia & Gabriel, São Paulo, Brazil, 2018; Para Marcela e as outras, Capela do Morumbi, São Paulo, Brazil, 2017; Los Ayudantes, Travesía Cuatro, Madrid, Spain, 2016; A mão negativa, Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015; Punto Ciego, EAC – Espacio de Arte Contemporáneo, Montevideo, Uruguay, 2014; Desvelo y traza, Matadero, Madrid & Centre d’lArt la Panera, Lérida, Spain, 2014; Imagine Brazil, Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo, Norway, all in 2013. Planos de Fuga, Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, São Paulo, Brazil; Sin Heroismos, por favor, CA2M (Centro Dos de Mayo), Madrid, Spain; Penumbra, Fundação Eva Klabin, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, all three in 2012.
