"One Horn, Five Pipes And
Two Objects More"
A Documentary Film By Yapci Ramos
Join co-producer of One Horn, Five Pipes and Two Objects More, Sara Catalan, who will host an evening that merges an exhibition of Yapci Ramos’ work through the years, culminating in this Lynchean project were fate and coincidences have driven her to explore herself via her deceased uncle. Join us for a night of art, questions and answers while sipping delicious drinks to support the filming of One Horn, Five Pipes And Two Objects More.
While investigating the origin of four objects, which the director inherited from an uncle of hers, she unearths fragments of her uncle’s past that strangely speak to her directly. This interweaving of past and present will provide insights into something that is deeply ours although we were unaware of it.

Born and raised in Barcelona, Sara Catalán lives and works between New York and Barcelona. With a background in interior and ephemeral architecture, after a nagging desire to do more impactful work she moved to New York to pursue her masters in Design For Social Innovation at the School of Visual Arts. She has continued to develop and broaden her curriculum in Central Saint Martin’s College of Arts & Design London (CSM), Centre de Cultura Contemporànea de Barcelona (CCCB), courses at the Whitney Museum and the Brooklyn Institute of Social research, and a business program at Columbia University.
She began practicing ways to implement her design skills to tackle complex social problems and acknowledged art as a powerful tool in the face of current issues. Backed by her experience at UN Women, Columbia University, various galleries and art festivals she created The Overart, a cultural hub that uses art to enable artists to become artivists. Bridging the US and Europe Sara has worked with artists in Art Basel Miami, Venice Biennale and galleries over Barcelona and Brooklyn. She is passionate about the social impact of art and believes this is the perfect time to empower artists to find their cause.
