What is the relationship between words and images, between the ‘sayable’ and the visible? How do readers recognise, or invent, the meaning of a story? How do memory and history, fact and fiction, interlock? Alejandro Cesarco devotes himself to these questions in his art works which make references to the legacy of international conceptual art: he makes linkages with language and literature-based designs by artists such as John Baldessari, Marcel Broodthaers and Lawrence Weiner but also with works by Félix González-Torres and Louise Lawler. His textual works, photographs, collages, films, artist books and installations all contain autobiographical as well as literary references. They reflect on the possibilities of making and translating historical references. During this process the emotional dynamics of interpersonal relationships is of special importance to him.
