Carolina Jacobs Ramos is a Brazilian artist, currently living and working in NYC. Thinking about impalpable biological and social processes, she interprets and imagines living interactions in video, sculpture and two dimensional works. Interdependences, biological symbiosis, and dispersions remind her of wandering and movements in search of connection, survival and belonging. Loss is insidious, pervasive and rendered invisible by productivity. Questions remain about whose names, memories and stories are being replicated and passed forth collectively, and at what cost. So much is stored and moving inside, we must keep it alive.
Recently, her relationship with porcelain has grown into a full blown love affair. She longs for porcelain to reciprocate her love by patiently and tenderly engaging its singular mass. Carolina previously worked on her art practice in Pittsburgh, PA at UnSmoke Systems. She is a contributor to the MoonArk Project, an interdisciplinary art project curated to land on the moon in 2023. She currently works as a psychotherapist and social worker in New York City. She received a BHA in Psychology and Fine Arts from Carnegie Mellon University and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh.
