    Michel Rein, Paris, Brussels

    Enrique Ramírez was born in 1979 in Santiago. He lives and works between Paris and Santiago.

    In his father’s workshop, Enrique Ramírez, found patched and worn sails, material memories of the winds and tides that have swept them, which the artist presents here in vitrines. On their surfaces, the projected shadow of a text/poem, a trace of the action of folding them on the beach before storage at the workshop. These archaeological vestiges summon several images: a nomad or traveller’s badly worn bundle of possessions, but also a shipwreck.
