Please Do Not Enter announces its first artist in residency project, featuring experimental French artist Frédérick Gautier. 

Beginning July 20th, Gautier will spend two months in Los Angeles interacting with the site and creating works in a temporary studio space in Frogtown where he will produce a series of 100 three-dimensional ceramic objects derived from the traces, cracks, holes, and imprints cast and drawn from the remnants of the site's physical history. 
 

In his own words, Gautier's goal is to "set out in search of visible forms and footprints, to inventory some one hundred cracks, joints, and holes in the concrete riverbed. Throughout my expedition downriver, beneath the bridges that span the flow of water and time, and one hundred years of civil engineering and architecture, I will be locating and highlighting one hundred discrete time markers. I will use this material for my fantasized reading of the watershed, grounded in true stories of day-to-day life on and around the river."

Residency begins July 20th, 2016 | Exhibition Opening on September 21st, 2016
