LLANOS…THE VILLAIN OF THE VIDEO
Fernando Llanos has exhibited in more than 50 countries in spaces such as the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the CCB in Barcelona, the Rufino Tamayo Museum in Mexico City and the Mercosul Biennial in Porto Alegre.
Llanos is recognized as draftsman, publishing designer, sculptor, installationist and recently as a filmmaker (his first feature Matria).
This exhibit presents a synthesis that covers his works from different periods and different formats. We have selected a dozen works which, decontextualized, erect with vigor and form a heterogeneous group that surprises and allows to enter in the last twenty-two years of this creator.
In the early years of this century, Fernando has an international recognition for the creation of a character called Videoman, the superhero of video. In this, his first individual exhibition in Spain, we wanted to present the other side of the coin: Llanos…The villain of the video, to show its more stranger side.
