'Methodology' is a video that takes up secrecy as a narrative structure and a mode of address: what is said and what cannot be said, and the way people act in relation to what is alluded to, taken for granted, or ultimately silenced. The second work is a photographic diptych, “The Gift and the Retribution” (2011), and consists of photographs of the covers of two books with crossed dedications: “The Goodbyes” by Juan Carlos Onetti and “Love Poems” Idea Vilariño. A recurring motif in Cesarco’s work, the dedication is a device for justifying the production of a work to a public.
