MEMBERS-ONLY EVENT: COCKTAILS AMIDST LES FRÈRES CHAPUISAT’S CORNERSTONE AT VDL
The LA Forum kicks off 2017 with a special members-only cocktail hour amidst the art installation “Cornerstone” by Les frères Chapuisat in the courtyards of the VDL House. Please join fellow LA Forum members, Board members and Advisory Board members for drinks and conversation while experiencing this immersive, site-specific structure.
The Department of Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona (CPP ARC) is pleased to host Les frères Chapuisat to live and work at the Neutra VDL Studio and Residences to create their first installation in California. Installed in the courtyards of VDL, Richard Neutra’s architecture acts as host to Les frères Chapuisat’s parasitic structure made up of thousands of board feet of pine planks
Les frères Chapuisat received an artistic education abroad for a number of years before ending up in Geneva in 2001, where their contrasting experiences led them to develop an interest in spatial studies. Their constructions transform space, turning interior and exterior boundaries inside out and toying with the perception of a subjective reality. They demand visitors’ active participation, putting them into the position of being an explorer. These environments break down visual and intellectual habits, testing the explorers and obliging them to trust in their senses.
Event is free for members + one guest.
