Son of a Mariachi, Naufus Ramirez-Figueroa is a Guatemalan artist living in Vancouver, BC. His work is based around the ephemeral, manifested primarily through performances and installations.
According to Naufus:
“In this performance-installation, I slept with a banana bunch for two weeks. Letting it slowly turn yellow through contact with my body’s warmth. Para Ti El Banano Madura Al Peso De Tu Dulce Amor questioned if the Central American psyche has been affected by its interminable economic dependence on the exportation of bananas.”
