Leticia Ramos: História Universal dos Terremotos (Universal History of the Earthquakes)

Pivô, Edifício Copan, Avenida Ipiranga, 200, Republica

The project is the result of a research developed in 2016 with Botín Foundation Arts Grant, destined to foment artists’ production from all around the world selected through a rigorous process. Ramos’ research departs from an earthquake followed by a tsunami and a fire in Portugal in 1775. This disaster left deep marks in the national imaginary and, consequently, in its relationship
to colonial Brazil.

For this exhibition, the artist presents a simulation of a seismograph, that registers the vibrations of the Copan building, along with a new film where she test-out an experiment described by Immanuel Kant in an essay that aimed to investigate the natural processes that triggered Lisbon’s catastrophe.
