EL FLECO - an electronic book
El Fleco is a signpost spot in art for Belize. Here we have an artist whose life is her work. At 24, she’s already been secretary, art student, teacher and girlfriend. She dropped out of art school. She resigned a few times. At the core, El Fleco is an artist. She says dormant, I say conceptual. She is honest.
I asked Kate if I could write and design a book about her 24 year old life not because I am fascinated by the idea to “turn up the lights”, but because I want the rest of our population especially those with social power to recognize that our educational and cultural foundations are based in theatrical fakery. We have too many institutions void, bankrupt and lacking in diligence. Our sense of urgency is becoming extinct.
