Traces AIR Antwerpen

Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa in Playground Festival

Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa 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.

On Thursday 15 November at 6pm Ramírez-Figueroa presents his new performance Cacaxte n°1. In this performance Ramírez-Figueroa works with our relationship with objects and how objects are part of the construction of our identity. During his residency he created a new series of sculptures he will use during his performance.

The performance is part of The Playground Festival and in collaboration with Museum M in Louvain.
