Bisabuela, 2019




Photos from 1931/2019. Lenticular Photography. Why are we the way we are? What weight does family have over an individual? Is there such a thing as a subconscious trans-generational legacy? Artist Yapci Ramos sets out on a journey into her family album to try to unravel the keys to her own identity, but also the links between that identity and a legacy inherited from previous generations, from her geographic context and her sociocultural environment. With that purpose in mind, she has made a selection of family photos which she compares, imitates and confronts in a process that, in turn, becomes a path towards self- knowledge. However, instead of answers, what she comes across are encounters and dialogues with the other. What resonates inside her are echoes from the past, those fragments of others which the artist attempts to reveal for herself in order to disentangle a narrative in which past and present are intertwined. Accordingly, Ramos’s work lays bare the complexity that underlies the configuration of one’s own identity, in this case in relation with the analogy of the family. - Excerpt from essay by YOLANDA PERALTA, Art historian, curator, researcher.
