PROJECTION // VINCENT LAMOUROUX

APRIL 26, 2015 – MAY 10, 2015
TIME AND SITE-SPECIFIC INTERVENTION BY VINCENT LAMOUROUX ON THE SUNSET PACIFIC MOTEL PROPERTY, LOS ANGELES

French artist Vincent Lamouroux is set to transform Silver Lake’s deserted and derelict Sunset Pacific Motel, also known as the “Bates Motel” into a temporary and ephemeral art installation that will radically punctuate the cityscape for two weeks. An unprecedented public art project for the city of Los Angeles, Projection will be a temporal intervention into an iconic piece of LA’s architectural history and urban lore. Lamouroux will cover the entirety of the building, including its flanking palm trees and billboard, with an opaque white limewash, effectively arresting the structure in a three-dimensional state of simultaneous disappearance, purification and ossification. The large bleached white structure will create a stark visual contrast set against the clear blue Los Angeles sky.
