¿De acuerdo a que? (Publication)

¿De acuerdo a qué? (2019) is a publication in which the images of hand gestures are regarded as units with an indexical function in the embodiment of political discourse. Each image from the artist’s photographic collection of hand gestures was deciphered or interpreted by people in different fields – artists, journalists, philosophers, doctors, mathematicians, musicians, poets, etc – invited in the hope they would use their expertise to decode them. This method was intended as a kind of auto-attack on the meticulous and obsessive taxonomy of the archive first created in Los Gestos Muertos. In ¿De acuerdo a qué? others disseminated the images for their resignification. This publication intentionally suspended any possibility of unambiguous narration about each image. When the images returned to the artist accompanied by the deciphered texts, the arbitrary fabrication of the order of this archive became ever more evident.
