Descripción de la Exposición

Born in Montevideo (Uruguay), Alejandro Cesarco lives and works in New York. His work unfolds as a series of deductions that often indicate an elsewhere or an off-camera, bearing witness to the experience of reality in all its discontinuity. Alejandro Cesarco describes his practice as addressing questions of “repetition, narrative, and the practices of reading and translating.” Artworks take the form of film and video, prints and photographs, text and drawings, among others, and evince a deep engagement with the histories and aesthetics of Conceptual Art. With a poetic, sometimes romantic, other times melancholic air, they represent a sustained investigation into time, memory, and how meaning is felt. Many of Cesarco’s artistic strategies point to the influence of literature on his practice, structurally and conceptually, directly and indirectly. Certain works take the form of the index, the dedication, and the table of contents. Texts by authors such as Robert Walser, Jorge Luis Borges, Marguerite Duras, and Clarice Lispector are quoted in structure or subject matter. A similar “personal canon” could be drawn from the fields of cinema and art. Over all, Cesarco’s methodologies variously mine the possibilities of tropes and archetypes, inspiration and appropriation, genre and style. Curator: Agnès Violeau. Partners: The exhibition is co-produced by the Jeu de Paume, the CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux, and the Museo Amparo Puebla, México. The Friends of Jeu de Paume, and the Friends of CAPC contribute to the production of works in the Satellite program.
