Interview Pinault Collection
I came face to face with myself and I started doing all those things that I had never taken the time to do”. Enrique Ramírez
You studied at the Le Fresnoy National Contemporary Arts Studio in Tourcoing from 2007 to 2009. Have you been back to the north of France since then? What did you think about spending another year here?
The north of France was the first part of the country—and of Europe—that I encountered. I landed in Paris in 2006 and went straight to Roubaix from there. This is where I learned French, where I studied, where I have made lasting friendships, and where I exhibited my first artistic projects. This region has welcomed me fully and I consider it home. So, yes, I was overjoyed at the prospect of coming back in residence!
