Valeska Soares – Threshold (Brown)
Valeska Soares was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in 1957. Her sculptures and installations utilize a wide range of materials—including reflective mirrors, antique books and furniture, chiseled marble, bottles of perfume—and draw on both her training in architecture and the tools of Minimalism and Conceptualism. Contrasting polished, industrial materials with more ephemeral ones, Soares’s work invites viewers to engage all five senses, evoking the poetic and elusive themes of desire, intimacy, language, loss, personal memory, and collective history.
Fortes D'Aloia & Gabriel features both young and experienced Brazilian artists. It’s unique program allows for 12 programs a year, workshops, book launches, and screening along with its involvement with international art fairs and exhibitions.
