At the beginning of August Pablo Ramírez González will take part in the SKW Overdue time off program. Mexican artist was born in Guadalajara and less than 3 days after arriving in Poland he encountered the problem of being unable to travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The artist has a master degree in artistic production and visual arts. He graduated from the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos, UAEM (Mexico).
Pablo Ramírez González is interested in the relationship between leisure and work, as well as the topic of tourism, neohippie and spiritual experiences. Just before coming to Poland, three months ago, González worked in the Mayan jungle in Tulum, which is one of the most popular destinations for alternative tourism in the Mexican Caribbean. He photographed the contradictions of the local community and created a series of works entitled "Jungleporn". It is worth emphasizing that Pablo decided to rethink these "paradise vacations" during his residency in Wrocław and will create a quiet place to expose his photographs, fitting them into the city's environment. In his project, he would like to emphasize the analog character of such activity.
The artist creates many projects which involve local communities, e.g. in 2019 he cooperated with the Identitat collective from Barcelona on the project "Ecosystems of recreation". He did a map for undocumented migrants then. Other projects are mainly intermedia installations, photo projects, murals and artistic research projects.
