Max de Esteban‘s series of four “propositions,”are designed to challenge the viewer, leaving a lot to the imagination. Proposition Four, “Heads Will Roll,” are collages made of film stills, floral images and some text, relating to the constant barrage of imagery we see every day.
In a statement about the work, de Esteban says “Contemporary life shares, with equal strength, signs of the real and simulacra, of the past and the present, of images, texts and sounds. There are no master trajectories, no linear narratives, but multiple possible routes, all equally valid.”
“Trends emerge and others hibernate, nothing dominating for too long, nothing disappearing, merged in the fluidity of the present.”
De Esteban’s Proposition Four: Heads Will Roll was recently published by Hatje Cantz.
