Marcos Ramirez ERRE has moved between philosophical and formal strategies in an artistic practice that includes sculpture, painting, installation, and drawing, as well as photography and video. He chooses loaded surroundings that are charged with friction—the human body, language, cultural practices, and national borders. His site-specific installations pose critical questions that leave open the possibility of many different truths, unveiling the disparate realities that shape our heterogeneous society. Committed to memory and perceived historical truths, Ramirez ERRE addresses the volatile coexistence of racism, xenophobia, and intolerance.
