Light Boiled Like Liquid Soap

March 25, 2016 – October 9, 2016
Fogo Island Gallery

Light Boiled Like Liquid Soap is a series of newly commissioned works by Wilfrid Almendra. Fogo Island Arts presents the French-Portuguese artist’s first solo exhibition in Canada, an immersive installation featuring sculpture, radio transmission and a series of objects that morph painting and drawing in a play of transparency. Combining found and repurposed materials, the works on view attest to notions of desire, circulation and flux, from protective spaces of retreat to global economies of exchange.

Almendra was an artist-in-residence with Fogo Island Arts in 2015. Light Boiled Like Liquid Soap is curated by Alexandra McIntosh (Director of Programs and Exhibitions, Fogo Island Arts) and Nicolaus Schafhausen (Strategic Director, Fogo Island Arts).

Gratitude is extended to Mécènes du Sud, Fondation Nationale des Arts Graphiques et Plastiques (FNAGP) and the Shorefast Foundation for generously supporting this exhibition. Fogo Island Arts graciously acknowledges its Patrons, Partners and Friends for their essential support of FIA residencies, programs and exhibitions.
