Ice Cream Empire
Francesco Pedraglio and Gavin Everall
London-based painter, writer and performance artist Kit Poulson is one of the busiest people in the contemporary British art scene, creating everything from sound art installations to carnival floats to this zany, experimental narrative. Three characters freed from the flow of causality intertwine through the experience of conversation. Evoking the writings of Malevich and Schwitters, the pastoral moments of Traffic and the ventriloquized insanity of Little Richard, history is revealed as a flow of conversations glancing off random precious artifacts, all shaped by the fluid, crystalline structure of the most delicious of desserts, ice cream. Ice Cream Empire is commissioned as part of the Time Machine, a project that asks us to forget about archives and embrace the confusion of the present, in order to consciously experiment with all our imaginable histories and expected futures.
