b. 1965, Cuban
Memorias acumuladas, 2004
soap, objects, wood
500 Sampsonia Way, fourth floor
Delgado continues to create work based on his incarceration in the early 1990s, where he began carving soap that was readily available. This installation is made up of 1,000 bars of soap inlaid with mundane objects, such as keys, pins and clamps. Wooden boxes enclose each series of ten similar objects, creating a room-sized display. The multiple soap bars fill the room with the heady scent of citronella.
