End of Century is pleased to announce “Would you like to some ice-cream with my friend and me?” a site-specific installation by Edouard Nardon, curated by Claudia Martinez Reardon.

Intentionally working within the context of a End of Century; a clothing, furniture, and gallery space, Nardon has chosen fox pelts, neon lights, and vintage furniture to articulate a process of seduction and detachment.  The title, a pick-up line taken from the movie Scarface, refers to the initial stage of seduction.

In the installation, the fox pelts represent the outer-most, protective layer of an individual.  A neon light penetrates the fur, signifying the breaking of the layer, and creating tension between the soft, organic fur and the cold, sterile bulb.  The vintage table represents the physicality of the act, and exists only as a place for the fur to rest.
