We thought in a month time we would have the shop all done and ready to go, but it actually took us a few more days than planned…however, after A LOT of hours and days putting down walls, building shelves, tagging beautiful new products, we are now opening a GORGEOUS shop for you all. This Saturday May 18th from 12pm to 9pm. Come by and say hello! Much love, we at LPP.

Artist Statement: “In a sense, inexhaustibility is a quality of any perceived object, which must always be grasped in relation to a fixed point of view and whose appearance must always be filled out by imagination – and in such a way that every viewing appeals to a multiplicity of other viewings and the possible continually lies at the horizon of the real.”
- Mikel Dufrenne, The Phenomenology of Aesthetic Experience, pp. 396
Rhea Cutillo (b. Philadelphia, PA) is a multimedia artist and a graduate of Mills College in Oakland, CA. She is interested in epistemic existence, both in the physical and immaterial realms, and aims to create immersive environments, often slightly fantastical or surreal. She is inspired by the unknown and the idea of freedom, and is often moved by textural elements.
A born traveler; she has numerous couch-surfing and hitchhiking adventures across the country. When Rhea is not painting or photographing, playing or pondering, she is working on a picture storybook project of such adventures.

The images below are just a selection of photographs from the exhibition which took place May 2011.
“Flotsam and Jetsam” is a collaborative project by Jacob Dahl Jürgensen and Simon Dybbroe Møller.
“Flotsam and Jetsam” is a common phrase that refers to discarded or useless objects, but its origin is in the way maritime law designates goods fished out of the sea or found on the shore. Whether caused by shipwreck (flotsam) or by deliberate jettison (jetsam), the convention crucially also stipulates that these objects must be returned to the original owner only if a proper claim for ownership is made.
For “Flotsam and Jetsam”, Jacob Dahl Jürgensen and Simon Dybbroe Møller collected a number of objects chosen for their sonic qualities, including pieces of furniture, glass jars, bottles, cans, metal pipes, and driftwood, from the shores of the volcanic island of Pantelleria near Sicily in July 2009. A group of associated artists was then invited to turn the objects into improvised musical instruments. Recorded outside on a patio over several extended day and night sessions, “Flotsam and Jetsam” was collectively performed by Eleanor Vonne Brown, Kerstin Cmelka, Raphael Danke, Jens Carl Daugbjerg, Jacob Dahl Jürgensen, Michele Di Menna, Daniel Müller-Friedrichsen, Simon Dybbroe Møller, and Emily Wardill.
Out of these ad hoc group compositions, Jürgensen and Møller selected raw material for two final mixes. “Flotsam and Jetsam” is a vinyl record, conceived as part of an exhibition of the same name, which comprises a display of the found objects used in the recordings and a short film shot on location during the collective process.
“Flotsam and Jetsam” associatively links ancient rituals of plunder and scavenging to modern artistic traditions such as the modernist embrace of the objet trouvé. Jürgensen and Møller’s project also playfully addresses the long-running relationships, ambiguities, boundaries, and traditions that define and govern the sea as social space and the collaborative possibilities inherent in island communities.
