Yapci Ramos

T (+34) 647 42 12 25

Yapci Ramos (Tenerife, 1977) lives and works between Barcelona, Tenerife and New York.

She explores identity, sexuality, and territory by creating multimedia installation works. Her work is emotional, physical, and introspective, frequently using her own body to channel the taboos, rituals, and catharsis that constructs the experience of being.

Ramos’s projects challenge the border of comfort between the body and society while engaging the intricate workings of both internal psychology and external expressions of identity.
