|2021 EDITION / DOKBIZIA / VACACIONES|
“Very early, we will follow a route lasting various hours, covering the spaces generated between the Retrato de un gudari llamado Odiseo, in the Citadel, to the Alzuza Fountain by the sculptor, Jorge Oteiza. A kind of collective action that forms part of the El final de un vacío es el principio de otro project, created for the Oteiza Museum. I propose the Oteiza vacuity as a work matter, but not that generated between the elements of a sculptor, but rather between two of his sculptures. This takes me to poetically active spaces of fifty centimetres in length, but also to imaginary sculptures of seven thousand kilometres. It is a kind of start of delirious work that takes me to connect the void with elements that are more akin to my work, such as walking, cartography, provoking situations and the narrative, thinking at the shared root of the vacuity with terms such as vague, vacations and vagabond”. — Fermín Jiménez Landa
El final de un vacío es el principio de otro, made for the Oteiza Museum, is part of the Hazitegia programme, developed alongside the Huarte Contemporary Arts Centre, with the collaboration of InnovaCultural, the Caja Navarra Foundation and La Caixa Foundation.
Fermín Jiménez Landa (Pamplona, 1979) creates actions, public interventions, videos, installations and drawings. He works in equivalence, reversal and exchange processes, revealing to the audience a reality from a point that is equidistant from both the absurd and sensible, endearing and iconoclastic, empirical and unverifiable. He has developed projects in the biennial Manifesta 11; in the MAZ Museum of Zapopan, Artium, MUSAC and CA2M museums; in Künstlerhaus Bethanien, in the Centro Botín, La Casa Encendida and in galleries such as Moisés Pérez de Albéniz, Travesía Cuatro and Nogueras Blanchard.
