The Long Term (A Measure of Intimacy)
The pages of this stapled book reproduce at 1:1 scale one of the five inkjet prints from Alejandro Cesarco’s 2020 series, The Long Term (A Measure of Intimacy).
According to the website of Tanya Leighton gallery: “From Marcel Duchamp’s or Stanley Brouwn’s meters, to Andre Cadere’s round bars of wood, to Guy Mees, or the Surface/Support group, Alejandro Cesarco’s series, The Long Term (A Measure of Intimacy), carries a long line of references. Moreover, they refer to Cesarco’s ongoing work portraying couples, their relationships, and the limits of language. These works stubbornly insist on questioning the sustainability of desire in the long term through allegorically measuring or quantifying the comforts of intimacy — its distance.”
