LATIN LONDONER #7: FERNANDO D GUIBERT
I inherited from my mother to be kind to people. From my father: to love art and be curious about everything.
The most useful piece of advice I've been given is "Follow your heart and your own nature." (Father)
The book I most admire is The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus. He wrote about the absurdity of man's life and the pholosophical rejection of our leap to God, therefore we must look with intensity at life itself. Free from the hope of eternity we must confront ourselves and find a meaning to our lives. It confirmed my personal views on the world.
'Generations' at The Crypt gallery
The film I would choose for its strength and beauty is “12 Angry Men” directed by Sidney Lumet. This film is a courtroom drama and portrays brilliantly the conflicts between people and the search for truth. I also enjoyed the way the film used a range of personalities involved and their psychological interaction.
The most influential figure in shaping my art is Francisco Goya.
An underrated virtue: Honesty
An overrated vice: Arrogance
The event that has had most impact on my life is the 70s in Argentina.
What I most like about London is it's cultural and artistic life.
My favourite place in London to hang out is The West End.
My favourite word: Art
The word I most dislike is Fanaticism
My favourite question? There would be many questions.
I believe in our capacity to achieve something regardless of difficulties and the young generation’s hopes for a better future.
I am sickened by the inequality of the world and how we let it happen.
If I could go back in time I'd go to Classical Greece.
GENERATIONS runs until THIS SUNDAY 20 November 2016 at The Crypt Gallery St Pancras Church, Euston Road, London NW1 2BA
Opening times 12 - 7pm
