Precinding from using archives and documents to create his works, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa attempts to confront historical narratives with his memory or testemony, making use of mediums such as woodcut, drawing, installation and performance. His relationship with the past, mainly the past of Latin America, is comprised of individual and collective experiences, as well as recurring references to myths. Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa holds a BFA from Emily Carr University in Vancouver and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and was a post-graduate researcher at Jan Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht in 2013. He has participated in various solo and group exhibitions including the 13th Lyon Biennial (2015); the 10th Gwangju biennial (2014); A Chronicle of Interventions, Tate Modern, London (2014); Illy Present Future 2013 Prize Exhibition, Castello di Rivoli, Turin; Beber y leer el arcoiris, Casa América, Madrid (2012); Home Works IV, Ashkal Alwan, Beirut (2008); and the 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), and recently won the 2015 ARCO Region of Madrid Award for Young Artists.
