Ramo received a creation grant in partnership with the Atelier des Artistes en Exil. 


What is your artistic background?

I studied at the Beaux-Arts for two years and then studied mathematics, but I have always had an interest in writing and poetry in all its forms. It's something I'm trying to translate today into installations in different media. 


How do you see your profession today?

I see art more as a passion than a profession, so I don't really know. I approach what I do with the same naivety and with the same ideals as I had when I went to art school 10 years ago. 


How do you see yourself in five years? In 10 years?

I hope to be happy and fulfilled, which means continuing to exercise my passion. I also hope to reach a position where I can help others.
