THE REASON WE NO LONGER SPEAK

Fahrenheit

David Douard’s residency at Fahrenheit culminates in his in situ installation, The Reason We No Longer Speak, with interventions by two LA-based artists, Liz Craft and Jesse Stecklow. The opening reception is on January 30th, and the exhibition will remain at the Fahrenheit until April 18th.


The Reason We No Longer Speak begins with the wish of collecting the saliva of a tiger at the Los Angeles Zoo. “The animal’s secretion would then be poured into jars and become the haunting cornerstone of the installation. Saliva appears in the exhibition as the liquid that enables language and provides a voice to those who can’t speak. It contains as much liquid as words and provokes a silent act of resistance and entangled words”.


David Douard, an artist based in Aubervilliers, France, is interested in systems of growth and decay. He creates interconnected systems and tweaks pedestrian objects. His work relates to animism, counter-culture, technology and urban-poetry.

Fahrenheit is supported in part by the FLAX Foundation.
