LA's Please Do Not Enter will join for the first time 85 premier national and international Decorative and Fine Arts Dealers presenting all Design Movements of the 20th Century as well as contemporary designers and artists. Please Do Not Enter is proud to highlight two celebrated French artists and designers, Guillaume Barder & Arik Levy.
Guillame Bardet "L'usade des jours"
Between 21 September 2009 and 20 September 2010, designer Guillaume Bardet composed a drawing of a personal object every day for a year. As an extension of this experience, the following year he brought these drawings to life with the help of a group of potters from the Dieulefit area (Drôme, in the south of France).
All these original unique pieces have been exhibited in four major museum exhibitions: the Cité de la céramique in Sèvres - 29 April to16 September 2012, at the Grand Hornu Images in Belgium - October 2012 to January 2013, at the Château des Adhémar contemporary art centre in Montélimar, and at the Maison de la céramique in Dieulefit - March 2013 to June 2013, and at the Mudac in Lausanne, Switzerland
These unique pieces will be exhibited for the fist time in the United States.
Arik Levy "Rock and Glass"
"Creation is an uncontrolled muscle" according to Arik Levy (born 1963).
Artist, technician, photographer, designer, video artist, Levy's skills are multi–disciplinary and his work can be seen in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Best known publicly for his sculptures – such as his signature Rock pieces –, his installations, limited editions and design, Levy nevertheless feels "The world is about people, not objects."
Hailing originally from Israel and moving to Europe after his first participation in a group sculpture exhibition in Tel–Aviv in 1988, Levy currently works in his studio in Paris.
Please Do Not Enter shows a selction of most recent pieces as well as older iconic works. This selection is the best introduction to the spectacular solo show Arik Levy will have in our Space in Downtown Los Angeles in May 2015.
