Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa

Guatemala-born artist Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa holds a BFA from Emily Carr University, Vancouver, and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Spanning theatre, drawing, literature, and sculpture, Ramírez-Figueroa’s work conjures live and sculptural representations that explore themes of loss, identity ,and displacement. The Guatemalan Civil War (1960–96) is a recurring subject in his work, which although often softened by an absurd and humorous approach, fails to conceal the force of history that precedes it.

Ramírez-Figueroa has participated in various solo and group exhibitions, including the 57th Venice Biennale; Rendez-Vous, 13th Lyon Biennale, 2015; Burning Down the House, 10th Gwangju Biennale, 2014; A Chronicle of Interventions, Tate Modern, London, 2014; Illy Present Future, Castello di Rivoli, Torino, 2013; Beber y Leer El Arcoiris, Casa América, Madrid, 2012; Home Works IV, Ashkal Alwan, Beirut, 2008; and 53rd Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen, 2007. He is a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Franklin Furnace Award, and an Akademie Schloss Solitude Fellowship (selected by Dan Graham). He attended the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht in 2013. Ramírez-Figueroa currently works in Berlin.
