DESCRIPTION

he Neutra VDL Research House in Los Angeles is pleased to present Architectones, an installation by artist Xavier Veilhan. Veilhan has created a new body of work specifically for the Modernist house Richard Neutra designed for his family and architectural practice. Consisting of monochrome interventions, the exhibition features sculptures throughout the property, from the front garden through the ground floor and domestic quarters to the rooftop reflecting pool. Statues, models, and other objects dialogue with the Modernist structure: its glass facades, rooftops, water basins and fountains. Both abstract and figurative, the artworks loosely trace the decades of the last century by focusing on the personal and professional history of architect Richard Neutra, his times, and Veilhan and his family's interaction with the house. The installation will also feature a soundtrack composed by Nicolas Godin of the band Air.
