His work revolves around the perception of contemporary art activity as a critique of culture. His artistic practice has links to historiography, journalism and the ambiguous relations between power and its propaganda.
Based on this, his artistic practice integrates diverse creative languages, among which sculpture and video are the most important, into the key elements of the dialectics between art and power, the role of artistic creations in the construction of the collective memory at the service of the conquerors and of some models of behaviour that are shaped with the tools of criticism and violence. His interest lies in emphasising the idea that we can no longer speak of history, but of fictionalised fabrications and, therefore, he looks into the visions and revisions as eternal echos that must be interpreted, recognising his fascination with the Foucauldian approach for the stories of the histories and the absurdity within the metanarratives.
All this can be seen in the three video pieces – Arquitectura del caballo (Architecture for the horse), Canicas (Marbles)and Pegasus Dance– that Fernando is presenting as part of Cáceres Abierto from June 1 to June 25 at the Provincial Historical Archive.
Opening hours: Monday to Sunday 11:00–14:00. Additionally, on June 1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24 & 25 from 18:00–21:00.
