Wilfrid Almendra ‘Material’ Opening
Fondation d'entreprise Ricard25.03.2013 #art
At Wilfrid Almendra, ideas and materials are inseparable. He draws his vocabulary from architecture, but especially from the forms and surfaces that surround us. Examining both amateur practices and the works of the great builders of modernity, he creates ambiguous sculptures by ingeniously associating composite sources. For the artist’s exhibition entitled “Matériologique”, curator Zoë Gray gathered some of her emblematic pieces at the invitation of the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard.
Last night – opening night, the gallery owners Bugada & Cargnel + guests continued the evening at the Meurice to blow out the artist’s 41 candles “as a family”. Happy materiological day, Wilfrid!
