Lola Ramos is a multimedia artist who performs urban interventions in the cities she visits. Daily monstrosities is one of her projects that plays with the idea of ​​the friendly, vulnerable and even the tender of the monstrous. In 'ace she researched the feminine, the monstrous representation of the woman in different cultures and mythologies. She also intervened the windows of the Transversal Space.

ARTIST STATEMENT
I think it is necessary to discuss the implications of being a woman or of the feminine in a period where we talk about gender, social roles, patriarchy, machismo and feminism. Understanding people and experiences, having the ideal man as a point of reference, turns the feminine into the opposite, the strange. What does it mean to be out of the norm when in truth we are 51% of the world's population? And also: what does it mean that the feminine is so rejected by society? The feminine characteristics are seen as inferior, taking women to a low category and causing men to seek an ideal of hypermasculinity that is extremely harmful. This model of society and entity must be discussed and revised. My project seeks to highlight the contradictions of the feminine, exhibiting what is seen as forbidden, hidden.
