Enrique Ramirez, born in 1979 in Santiago, Chili, splits his life between France and his native country since his stay in Fresnoy in 2007. After studies in cinema, he has incorporated literature into his visual art (video, photographs and installations) that triggers a new interest in the images. From his first works, he has turned to a “cinema for one person”, questioning again the boundaries between cinema and video through works that are engagé and poetic, and that constantly refer to the sensitivity of each person.

His video installations and photographs deal with the politics of exodus and exile, as well as the discontinuity of memory, but for the artist, this always implies a laborious quest within the subjective imagination. The vast landscapes that are scattered throughout his work are created as geo-poetical spaces for the imagination, territories open to vision and wandering. The atmosphere of the images is of a contemplative nature.
