  • The Story

Edited by Alexandra McIntosh and Nicolaus Schafhausen

Contributions by Bill Arning, Zoë Gray, Edgar Leciejewski, Nicolaus Schafhausen

 

Edgar Leciejewski: Tones presents work created by the Leipzig-based artist during his six-month residency with Fogo Island Arts, including a massive grid of 169 photographs of Fogo Island sunsets, photographic collages, and a large-scale composite photograph of a bookcase. Also featured are a series of precarious sculptures composed of broken crockery, glass and other debris tossed into the sea over the 200 years of island settlement, and collected by the artist along the seashore. At play within these works are attempts to reconcile seemingly opposing forces or phenomena, to incorporate the infinite within the specific, or to archive, stretch and condense our experience of time.

 

This publication accompanies the exhibition Tones presented at the Fogo Island Gallery from May 14 to December 12, 2015 and features critical texts by Bill Arning and Zoë Gray, a conversation between Edgar Leciejewski and Nicolaus Schafhausen, and is lavishly illustrated with original colour photography and installation views.
