Artist: Alicia Eggert
Location: Galeria Fernando Santos, Espaço Padaria Independente

Exhibition: 17th June - 16th September 2017
Adress: Rua Adolfo Casais Monteiro - Porto


Galeria Fernando Santos in Porto, Portugal, inaugurates the personal exhibition "Signs and Wonders" of Alicia Eggert, winner of the "Artist in Gallery" prize of the 10th Arte Laguna Prize. "Signs and Wonders" is the first personal exhibition of Alicia Eggert in Portugal and interdisciplinary works, new and recent, are exhbited. In particular it's possible to see the lenticular prints that moves by showing two different statements with the intent to prompt people into a reflective and philosophical inquiry.

The exhibition derives its title from the artist’s upbringing as the daughter of a Pentecostal Christian minister. “Unless you see signs and wonders,” Jesus said in John 4:48, “you will never believe.” Eggert, who as an adult has become an atheist, does not believe. But she has come to realize that art, religion and science - which are often opposing - have something really important in common: wonder. Wonder is both cognitive and spiritual. It’s the curiosity that drives us to learn new things about ourselves and the world around us, but it’s also the feeling we get when we encounter things that are beyond our understanding.

Alicia Eggert was born in New Jersey, United States in 1981. She is an interdisciplinary artist whose work focuses on the relationship between language, image and time. Alicia is the recipient of numerous honors and awards and her artworks have been exhibited at notable institutions nationally and internationally.
