Fogo Island Arts is pleased to announce the 2019 publication of Wilfrid Almendra: Light Boiled Like Liquid Soap.

The seventh volume in FIA’s publication series accompanies Wilfrid Almendra's exhibition Light Boiled Like Liquid Soap, curated by Alexandra McIntosh and Nicolaus Schafhausen and presented at the Fogo Island Gallery from March 25 to October 9, 2016. The book features a critical essay by Anne Faucheret, a work of speculative fiction by Nicolas Idier, poetry by Jorge Armando Sousa, a conversation between Wilfrid Almendra, Alexandra McIntosh and Nicolaus Schafhausen, and is richly illustrated with original colour photography and installation views.

Light Boiled Like Liquid Soap is an immersive installation featuring radio transmission and a series of sculptural elements made of copper, plaster, and silicone in various states of dematerialization. Combining found and repurposed materials, the works attest to notions of desire, circulation, and flux, from protective spaces of retreat to global economies of exchange. Based in Marseille, Almendra was an artist-in-residence with Fogo Island Arts in 2015.

Edited by Alexandra McIntosh and Nicolaus Schafhausen
