MARY-AUDREY RAMIREZ – Unsolicited Awakening

Exhibition: June 5 – September 15, 2024

Curator: Gesine Borcherdt

Mary-Audrey Ramirez (*1990 in Luxembourg City; lives and works in Berlin) creates imaginary beings that invade space by means of digital installations and sculptures made of fabric. Entrenched since her childhood in gaming – the pursuit of electronic video games – she lures us into her cosmos where virtuality and reality coalesce. Her apocalyptic, yet humorous pictorial language illuminates our pleasure in escapism as well as the immanent thrill of the potential of new technologies. For her solo exhibition in KAI 10 | ARTHENA FOUNDATION she has transformed the venue into an immersive sci-fi parkour flooded with specially designed sounds and light effects, similar to those experienced on launching a video game. During their visit, viewers are invited to play a video game she herself developed.

Mary-Audrey Ramirez studied fine art at the Berlin University of the Arts and has had solo exhibitions in the Casino Luxembourg (continuing until 28 April 2024), the Kunsthalle Gießen, the Dortmunder Kunstverein, the Overbeck Gesellschaft Lübeck, and at Trauma Bar und Kino Berlin. Institutions where she has participated in group exhibitions include the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, KAI 10 | ARTHENA FOUNDATION in Düsseldorf, Haus Mödrath in Kerpen, and Berghain in Berlin. She is represented by the Cologne-based gallery Martinetz.
