Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, conflicting stories collide in his exhibition Cecília rebelde. Ramírez-Figueroa explores the catholic St. Cecilia and the story of the Totonicapán Uprising of 1820 of indigenous Maya peoples (K’iche’) against the Spanish Empire in Guatemala. More specifically, the artist focuses on the rumor that Atanasio Tzul crowned himself king with the crown of St. Joseph, borrowed from the church, and used the crown of St. Cecília for his wife, Felipa Soc. Cecília rebelde includes paintings referencing source patterns from Saint’s clothing, bronze and symbolic resin sculptures of the catholic St. Cecília and the folk Cecília, and an audio piece written by collaborator St. Ezequiel with Melodic Adaptation and Vocal Performance by Julieta Garcia Reyes. Through a catholic saint and indigenous folk tale, Ramírez-Figueroa continues his series of work examining atrocities and rebellions. Monday-Friday: 10am-5pm, Saturday-Sunday: 12-5pm.
