Lola Ramos
Daily Monstrosities

30.07.18 03.08.18

Lola Ramos is a multimedia artist who performs urban interventions in the cities she visits. Daily Monstrosities is one of her projects, one that plays with the idea of the friendly, vulnerable and even the tender of the monstrous. At ´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’s 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.

The Latin America's Paris

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
