    Light Boiled like Liquid Soap

    Alexandra McIntosh and Nicolaus Schafhausen

    Light Boiled like Liquid Soap is an immersive installation by Marseille-based artist Wilfrid Almendra featuring radio transmissions 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.

    The seventh volume in the Fogo Island Arts publication series accompanies the eponymous exhibition curated by Alexandra McIntosh and Nicolaus Schafhausen and presented at the Fogo Island Art Gallery in 2016. Richly illustrated with color photographs of Almendra's installation, the book features a critical essay by Anne Faucheret, a work of speculative fiction by Nicolas Idier, poetry by Jorge Armando Sousa, and a conversation between Wilfrid Almendra, Alexandra McIntosh, and Nicolaus Schafhausen.

    Grey light—Left and right back, high up, two small windows

    Alexandra McIntosh and Nicolaus Schafhausen

    Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows (2014) is a major new work by London-based artist Hannah Rickards commissioned by Fogo Island Arts. Grey light is a two-screen projected video installation with eight channels of sound. Structured rhythmically around the pattern of a foghorn sounding, the piece finds its origins in the notion of the foghorn as an auditory marker for nonvisibility, or imagelessness.

    This publication features texts by Melissa Gronlund and Will Holder, a conversation between Rickards and Nicolaus Schafhausen, and striking new photographic imagery drawn from the installation's physical materials and production process. Like Rickards's work, the publication aims to bridge the distance between visual experience and its expression in language, whether spoken, written, or gestural.

    Tones

    Alexandra McIntosh and Nicolaus Schafhausen

    Edgar Leciejewski spent six months as an artist-in-residence with Fogo Island Arts in 2014. Tones brings together new work stemming from the Leipzig-based artist's time on the island, including large-scale collages, photographs of natural elements, and precarious sculptures composed of objects found on the shore. Taken together the works are a collection and an archive of time shown in modern images, raising questions on how we contemplate ideas of nature. This publication features essays by Bill Arning and Zoë Gray, as well as a conversation between the artist and Nicolaus Schafhausen.

    An example of the potential (and the contradictions) of contemporary alliances between art, design, and social entrepreneurship.

    Fogo Island, a fishing settlement with approximately 2,500 inhabitants, located off the coast of Newfoundland, saw its livelihood almost devastated in the mid-twentieth century because of industrial overfishing. The island is now experiencing a social, economic, and cultural transformation, due in part to a recent series of art, social business, and asset-based community development initiatives. Now, Fogo Island stands as an example of the potential (but also the contradictions) of contemporary alliances between art, design, and social entrepreneurship.
