Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa (1978, Guatemala) creates dreamlike scenes that build on references to literature, folklore, magic and childhood memories. His performances use sculpture to transfigure everyday images and objects into symbolic tableaux that engage with fantasy and allegory. His work is both playful and alluding to tragic or traumatic events relating to the social and political climate of present-day Guatemala. Following his residency at AIR in Antwerp Ramírez-Figueroa will present a new solo performance using sculpture and reference to different cultural traditions.
