Please Do Not Enter | PULO Project
Art and retail one stop concept shop Please Do Not Enter just presented their latest collaborative installation. Working with Filipino-American Curator Michelle Aquino, owners Nicolas Libert and Emmanuel Renoird produced the PULO Project to build awareness of the Filipino Art, design and fashion community. The project brings forth these works placing the southeast Asian island on the LA and global trajectory showcasing the artisan crafted products and conceptually driven art pieces.
Split into 3 parts, the first premiered yesterday in the flagship store as well as The Lab space at the Nomad. Each store was designed to showcase 2 varying moods from vibrant, neon, and synthetic to rustic, structured, and organic. At the opening, a performance titled “Aliens of Manila” presented the sculptural nature of Leeroy New’s colorful costumes as they moved through an abstract performance choreographed by Heidi Duckler Dance at the rooftop of the Nomad hotel.
Below are a featured selection of the artists that are part of this first drop.
