Alejandro Cesarco (German Edition) Paperback / softback
Paperback / softback
What relationships are there between words and images, between the speakable and the visible?
How do readers recognize or invent the meaning of a story?
How do memory and history, fact and fiction mesh? And what emotional ties or breaks result from the sense of pleasure taken in the text that comes about during the act of reading?With his art, Alejandro Cesarco (*1975 in Montevideo, Uruguay) invokes the legacy of international Conceptual Art, of language- and literature-based compositions by such artists as Marcel Broodthaers or Lawrence Weiner, as well as of works by Felix Gonzalez-Torres or Louise Lawler, to mention just a few examples.
His text works, photographs, collages, films, artist's books, and installations call concepts of authorship and subjectivity into question, and contain both autobiographical as well as literary references.
Cesarco sets out to explore the emotional dynamics in interpersonal relationships and gender-specific role distribution by verbal means.
In the process, the potential offered by narration, translation, and reference to history is of central importance.
