The patience displayed in Kacero’s artworks is present in his stories, they go at their
own unhurried pace with no set length. Patience is the essential tool of someone who
cherishes certain obsessions. It is these variations and repetitions that give the book
its unique quality. Scenes that echo between one story and another and link together
either obviously or surreptitiously. A story by Kacero is continued in a mirror-image in
another version. Stories as remakes. It is in this rewriting that he comes closest to his
artwork. Scribbles on a smooth surface. Reappearances, doubles, ghosts. Borrowed
memories, confused identities...
