    Hadrien Gérenton and Loup Sarion’s 'THE BIG SLEEP' presents an incongruous apparition for a New York City park—an enormous blue nose emerging like a hill from the ground. A translucent pink lizard sits at the threshold of one of the nostrils with its head engulfed inside the orifice. Evocative of multi-layered meanings of myths, fairytales, and origin stories, the piece invites both playful musings and psychoanalytic interpretations.
    Supported in part by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
