On a pocket copy of the Gospel according to Saint Matthew, published in 1930, Javier Viver incorporates photographs of the Spanish Civil War and the desecration of religious images, in the form of an illustrated bible. But beyond the illustration of the text, Viver composes a surprising visual story based on the sequencing of archive images, as he did in his previous photobook Révélations with images from the Iconographie de la Salpêtrière. In this particular contribution to historical memory, Viver aims to overcome the simplistic readings that ideology imposed on the two sides, to discover in human gestures and attitudes the Christs and Antichrists through the most beautiful images of the Civil War and its protagonists. A book that proposes overcoming the conflict through memory and understanding the human background that runs through it.Of particular interest are the photographs of the desecrated images, which document the traces of the passion represented by the images, reaching unsurpassed levels of realism.The volume is accompanied by a collection of micro-perforated stamps, similar to the ration cards of those years, to cut out and insert into the different passages of the book. They are images of wartime posters that seem to reproduce literally some of the photographs shown. A game in which the author invites the reader to participate in order to complete the story and in which document and fiction, reality and the represented coexist and question their limits.
