ELIDA ROMAN

An artist to Follow

Fermin Fleites’ recent work exhibited at the Praxis Art Gallery reinforces his multiple merits. He has the ability to bring together seemingly unrelated visual styles in an “ordered chaos” that make us jump from classical Greek and German Renaissance images to the most contemporary art forms, such as installations or conceptual art. In the process, his well informed gaze directs us to popular products and images associated with symbols, rituals, and magical beliefs practiced through time.

Fermin Fleites | Let Me Tell You

Fleites has a great capacity to integrate the sources of artistic production of our days: anthropology, psychology, history and ethnography. He does it through aesthetic fusions delivered with a sense of spectacle that shows its relationship with invented advertising icons.

Fleites’ personal game brings together and offers the audience a casual or contemporary humor that disregards pompous hyperbole. This humor is protected and undoubtedly directed by a reasonable and intelligent decision.

The artist places a special accent on magical practices in this group of works, from voodoo to Andean shamanism. He highlights the fascination tinged with fear and reverence that these magical practices have on the inhabitants of these cultures. He creates an amazing mural entitled “I and the other” that has a strong metaphorical impact. He also plays with elements that need prior educated information, as in “El Elegido” (a reference to the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian, stripped of all drama), or “Two hundred thirty-three hours for…,” made with organic pigments, gunpowder and coal.

“Let me tell you…” is part of a long-term project that led him to settle in Peru for a time. A work of art not only interesting, intelligent and fun, but full of reflections, humor and ambition.
One of the best performances so far this year.

Un Artista a Seguir.

Si algo refuerza los múltiples méritos de la obra reciente de Fermin Fleites expuesta en la Galería Praxis Art Gallery, es la capacidad de reunir propuestas visuals, aparentemente inconexas, en un “caos ordenado” que nos hacen saltar de las imágenes clásicas (Renacimiento griego y alemán) a las propuestas más inmediatas, como instalación o arte conceptual sin olvidar la mirada erudita dirigida a productos e imágenes populares. En este caso, relacionados con el ritual, la creencia mágica o asociación simbólica, que desarrolla la madre naturaleza, el tiempo y la conducta.

Fleites tiene una gran capacidad para integrar las fuentes de producción artística de nuestros días. Antropología, Psicología, Historia y Etnografía, materializadas a través de fusiones estéticas, entregadas con un sentido del espectáculo que no deja de mostrar su relación con el icono publicitario inventado ad-hoc. El humor casual o contemporáneo, de Fleites reúne y ofrece al público el resultado de Un juego personal, protegido y dirigido sin duda por una decisión razonable e inteligente, desestimando la retórica grandilocuente.
El artista puso un acento especial, en las prácticas mágicas en este grupo de obras, desde el vudú hasta el chamanismo andino, destacando la fascinación teñida de miedo y reverencia que se ejerce en los habitantes de estas culturas, creando un asombroso mural, titulado “Yo y el otro” al que asignamos una condición metafórica de fuerte impacto. También juega con elementos que necesitan una información previa educada, como en “El Elegido” (una referencia al martirio de San Sebastián, despojado de todo drama), o “Doscientas treinta y tres horas para …”, realizada con pigmentos orgánicos de origen natural, pólvora y carbón ».
“Déjame que te cuente …” completa la propuesta, parte de un proyecto a largo plazo que lo llevó a instalarse por un tiempo en Perú. Una obra de arte no solo interesante, inteligente y divertida, sino llena de reflejos, humor y ambición retórica.
Una de las mejores actuaciones en lo que va de año.
