The Foundation for the Museum of Man proudly presents the first solo show on Honduras of the Salvadoran artist BAUTISTA, with the support of The Fire Theory. The show is made by 12 pieces (1 installation, 6 videos and 3 web objects, also 1 web project), of those, 10 are recent and inedited production: Politics of Symmetry; Father, Mother, Son; New Promises; Reverence; Maps of the Sky; Testimony; The Frame Within the Existence Happens, Relations of the Divided Body, Origin of Forgetfulness; Manifesto of Death.

The exhibition is an existential and poetical visit to an inevitable circumstances situation about the inner imaginaries and shelters. Bautista unfold with an hermetic viscerality one set of images designed to perceive and reflect, making bridges between poetry of reality and media and social visuality, as well as to the institutionalism itself.

About the show Bautista says: 'The term Democratization of Fear, is a shape that, I think, describes organically a process of forced involvement with social environments that many Latin American countries have contemporarily. The person doesn't chooses to be afraid, but, the phenomena that raises the interaction with her/his practice of fear, generates new structures to deal with it, and understand it as a conscius decision, that rethinks the reach for sense'. Viktor Frankl portraits this on a very detailed way on Man's search for meaning: ''The way in which a man accepts his fate and all the suffering it entails, the way in which he takes up his cross, gives him ample opportunity--even under the most difficult circumstances--to add a deeper meaning to his life..'

'Bautista's work is integrated as a first person narrative in which each viewer creates the world they want for themselves, but where is in no way to perpetuate it rather than assuming its social and collective rol, is revealed as a confrontation to different types of realities, not only context but also intimate realities that become habits, norms, customs and policies, but taking the anonymity of the beholder; enabling everyone takes some of that imaginary of real, where Bautista only places a number of fragments to be completed by the person who sees it, at the end of the day 'The reality of all of us has also become realistic' and accomplice.' (Edith Medina).
