The publication USELESS#2: ENRIC FARRÉS DURAN. PAPER PLAYING A PART is one of the results of Enric Farrés and Vista Oral trip to Los Angeles during April 2017. The publication –along with the exhibition that formed part of– is another turn of the screw to Los papeles del Siglo project.
Good morning, I am Enric Farrés Duran and I will now explain what I have brought for you. Well, the first thing that I want to explain is that I work in an enormous secondhand bookshop (…) At first I was very excited, but as usually happens when working with set schedules, it ends up being boring. Boredom that disappeared one day when, in a book, I found a very disturbing paper.
Fermín Jiménez Landa. (Pamplona,1979)
Fermín Jiménez Landa, works in performance, public intervention, video, installation or drawing. He uses equivalence, inversion and substitution processes that make us see reality from an equidistant point between absurdity and wisdom, charming and iconoclastic, empirical and unverifiable.
Useless, not serving the purpose or any purpose; unavailing or futile, without useful qualities; of no practical goal.
Useful, being of use or service; serving some purpose; producing results.
