An exhibition of work by Maya Ramsey
Ramsay makes work inspired by the subject of conflict. Using unique techniques, she lifts surfaces from sites of conflict, bringing the materiality of the subject closer to the viewer. For ‘Countless’, Ramsay has made twenty-nine rubbings from the graves of migrants who died at sea whilst trying to reach Europe. The first recorded shipwreck of a migrant boat in Europe occurred twenty-nine years ago, in 1988.
