My basic intention is to make memory public, but to do it from a different aesthetic, where there is an important visual presence. – Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa
In a body of work that ranges from performance and video to sculpture, installation, and printmaking, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa explores historical narrative (especially the effects of the Guatemalan Civil War) through the circumstances of the body. His proposition – that intimacy both marks and subverts our collective myth-making – reveals itself through investigations of dreams, architecture, abstraction, theater, and notions of the spiritual.
