Enrique Ramírez is a Chilean artist graduated from Le Fresnoy. His films, installations and photographs, full of poetry, question History and the contemporary world, with the sea as a recurrent element of his creations. Born during the Pinochet dictatorship, Ramírez evokes in many of his works the bodies of the “disappeared,” those killed by the regime and often thrown into the sea.

"I think of history and life as a cycle. We do something, and later we will have the returns as "echo".

It is a text that makes me think, that asks us the following question: How should we think our present?"
