Recording a breath on a stone’s memory, growing crystals from saliva, or the capturing of rainfall through asphalt. Inés Cámara Leret investigates ideas central to the fields of identity, memory and ecology, collaborating with professionals ranging in expert knowledge. Exploring life through that which is seemingly static, at times inert, or apparently ephemeral.
Experimentation and research are key aspects of Inés’ practice. As such she adopts the role of an alchemist and tinkers with processes, understanding materials not by what they are but by what they can do. In doing so, a deep understanding of traditional knowledge is combined with unconventional methodologies revealing the unseen complexities of our contemporary culture.
Inés has exhibited internationally and nationally, engaged with a variety of audiences and received commissions from institutions like: King’s College London, MU Artspace, Science Gallery London, Abandon Normal Devices and the Museum of Contemporary Art of León in Spain (MUSAC). Having been selected in 2016, Inés is currently a resident at Somerset House Studios at Somerset House London.
