Requiem for Mirrors and Tigers is a series of six documented video performances by Guatemalan artist Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa. This series documents interrelated performances and were produced for the camera. Commissioned by the Corpus Network and produced in association with If I Can't Dance, Amsterdam the series features the artist working both in solo performances and with an ensemble in an ethereal and captivating series of performances. For Requiem, Naufus Ramirez-Figueroa developed a cycle of new performance works. Across the punctuated moments of the cycle, Ramirez-Figueroa used his body and direct action to perform a series of images related to the history of the Guatemalan Civil War. Approaching the Civil War from a personal position, he has softened this images through abstraction and humour, while attempting to use the intensity of the performance schedule to push beyond the immense force of the collective and inscribed memory of the war's history. Beyond the live performances, the cycle of works form a collective of videos.
