Mary-Audrey Ramirez
Forced Amnesia

Opening: 14. April, 7 pm
Duration: 15.04. – 30.06.2023

In cooperation with Casino Luxembourg
Curated by Dr. Nadia Ismail + Kevin Muhlen

Digital techniques and creatures from computer games stand at the centre of the Luxembourg artist Mary-Audrey Ramirez’s (* 1990) work. Her installations create the impression of being in the middle of an online video game. Contrasting fantasy and real life, as well as the steady migration of the digital into our world are integral parts of her practice. An apocalyptic beauty resides in her works, from which a subtle humour occasionally emerges. The exhibition is being realised in cooperation with Casino Luxembourg, where it will be on display from 02.02. (opening) to 05.05.2024.

Mary-Audrey Ramirez lives and works in Berlin. Her works have been shown in both solo and group exhibitions at institutions such as Esch2022 + ARS ELECTRONICA, Luxembourg/Linz; Dortmunder Kunstverein, Dortmund; Kai 10, Düsseldorf; Haus Mödrath, Kerpen; Margot Samel Gallery, New York City; Polansky Gallery, Prague and MARTINETZ, Cologne. She has received multiple awards and artist residencies including at ISCP New York City, USA in 2022.
