Stelios Faitakis
Lasco Project #6 - Palais de Tokyo


His desacralized icons present flaming haloes, Palestinian resistance fighters, riots, or the excesses of capitalism, dissolved into landscapes in which businessmen are hanged, along with the bling-bling debauches of gilded youth or, more recently, the deadly crossings of migrants. At the Palais de Tokyo, Stelios Faitakis is presenting two murals on the theme of non-submission, with the artist weaving connections between the events of May 68 as influenced by Situationist thought, which he now updates with the current actions of the 15-M Movement who – from New York to Madrid, via Paris, Athens or even Chili – have been attempting to shake up our era.
