NICOLAS POL CALLS HIS LATEST MILAN EXHIBITION "OPENING OF VERMIN HUNTING SEASON." WE CALL HIS ART OPENING A CHIC TURNOUT, GAME FOR ANYTHING
Last night (October 14th) in Milan, Nicolò Cardi and Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld held a reception at the Cardi Black Box for French artist Nicolas Pol’s latest exhibition, After Modern Vermin Control, which features 17 new works. The exhibition marked the first collaboration between Cardi and Roitfeld, as well as Pol's first solo show in Italy. The works are beautiful and frightening (the best art always is), and they incorporate Pol's trademark "preoccupation with scientific advances—the notion that there is nothing left to be discovered and that mystery and surprise are a thing of the past." The works in this exhibition, specifically, involve "vermin, such as rodents and insects, to illuminate the pests or nuisances that threaten the progression of human society." Unlike the tone of the pieces, the opening was a lighthearted affair, attracting Milan's top tier of the fashion set.
After Modern Vermin Control will be on display until December 15th, 2013.
