M Museum, Leuven

Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa (1978, Guatemala) creates dreamlike works of art with elements from literature, folklore, magic and childhood memories. His performances, sculptures and installations are rooted in experimental theatre and they have a political activist side too. In particular, the tragic civil war in his homeland Guatemala (1960-1996) is a recurring theme. Ramírez-Figueroa's approach is strongly visual. He creates symbolic scenes with a humorous, playful or absurd slant. His work explores cultural identity and history, trauma, colonisation and the connection between man and nature.

Across five rooms, the exhibition presents a selective overview of his diverse artistic practice. M presents spatial installations, sculptures, recent films as well as several new productions. Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa has already exhibited a performance and video work at M during Playground in 2017 and 2018. With these exhibitions we are highlighting his work in its broadest sense.
