t the intersection of art and design, Gautier's ceramics explore the themes of necessity, utility, shape and form. Through his art, he establishes a dialectic between the constructed form and the organic, the made and the found, the object and the space, the feeting and the permanent. By using a repertoire of simple shapes, the artist is influenced by Bauhaus, Le Corbusier and Mallet Stevens.
In June 2015, Gautier resided on the Louise Catherine, a boat converted by the architect Le Corbusier on the River Seine in Paris. While on site, Gautier conceived and produced the performance project Tx100, creating 100 tea-pots in concrete, that were exhibited in the raw space of the boat evoking reference to everyday objects and to ideas of nomadic microarchitecture.
Please Do Not Enter is glad to present 30 of this unique tea-pots.
