There’s a kind of child who doesn’t get so easily satisfied by the stories that are given to them. Alfredo Aceto must have been one of them. And trying to imagine what his relationship to classic childhood narrative was is not that uncanny, since most of his gestures take that stage of his life as a point of departure. More precisely, they exploit particular details that became, with time, obsessions: we’re talking about Sophie Calle, Pripyat, Whales, Godzilla, or cars (and specifically some models). Those are the components of a cosmology that the artist is permanently reconfiguring for every project, building up a world full of symbols and events, where the timeline is unclear – meaning non-linear.
