WE LEFT THE WARM STABLE AND ENTERED THE LATEX VOID (WLTWSAETLV) is a cooperatively organized artist residency, lecture series and project space located in François Lemieux’s Montréal apartment. It is run collaboratively by exhibiting artists and WLTWSAETLV. It presents talks, interviews and workshops through which a multiplicity of independent practices are launched into discursive motion. WLTWSAETLV has no program, nor does it have a board of directors or state funding to finance its operations. Its activities question current conditions of visual arts production and presentation in Québec. WLTWSAETLV has a predetermined lifespan of 20 months, after which it will cease its activities.

Since 2006, François Lemieux has developed an art practice that makes reference to art, architecture, and design. His work explores and questions the economy as well as the relationships that exist between objects, the means of their production, and the circumstances of their exhibition and reception. Lemieux lives and works in Montréal.

François Lemieux will present WLTWSAETLV and the WLTWSAETLV residency program in French.

Michael Pohl completed his studies at the Kunstakademie Münster in 2009, under professors Maik and Dirk Löbbert. Since 2006, Pohl has operated a number of independent exhibition spaces including CLUB69, an independent artist initiative located in his Münster apartment. His work as an artist and as an exhibition organizer offers ironic commentary on the ways in which art is produced and presented. Michael Pohl currently lives and works in Münster, Germany.
