Alejandro Cesarco, whose work often explores the relationship between words and images, took part in Don't Talk to Strangers by publishing a booklet that retraces a dialogue he held with the collector Christoph Schifferli. The two exchanged stories (contributed by Cesarco) and images (taken from Schifferli’s collection of film stills), which were compiled for the occasion of the exhibition.
Everything starts with an idea that leads to a dialogue.
What happens when someone thinks about an artist they fancy, for 24 consecutive nights, just before falling asleep? Well, nobody really knows, so we tried it out. Like dreams, the publication remains inaccessible to most readers as it was sent to a far away library nestled in Uganda.
Perhaps only a dream away.
