    2011 SURFACE LIFTED

    FROM WALL 65 x 90 CM

Maya Ramsay is an artist who works with historically and politically important sites, usually those that are due to be demolished or renovated- capturing visual histories that would otherwise be lost. A unique process is used to lift off the top layer of surfaces from the built environment and to re-present these slices of our surroundings. 

Maya is currently working on COUNTLESS - a project making work from gravestones in relation to the unknown numbers of migrants who have died trying to reach Europe by boat, and articles in relation to this for ‘a/political’ and ‘Crossings: Journal of Migration and Culture’.
