Fermín Jiménez Landa

Placing himself voluntarily on the margins of established categories, Fermín Jiménez Landa's work draws on a wide range of presentation formats: installation, photography, text, drawing and video, documenting subtle actions that distort the customary rigidity of public space. An obsessive and frenetic working process that starts with the everyday and familiar to open up new possibilities of relation and reception of the artistic act.

This is the line along which he developed the "Puertas" projects, based on a month of travelling adrift with a single premise, not to touch doors; "Himno Nacional", which deals with the notion of "micro-nation" and the resources that define sovereignty, for which he conquered an island by installing a powerful sound system with a new anthem; "Actos oficiales", in which the artist develops several lines of action and formalisation focused on concrete and atypical energy manifestations.
