high score

Object: Pinball / Dimensions: 132x148x56 cm / Year: 2009

High Score is a reinterpretation of a pinball machine that plays on all the nuances of the "replica", from faithful reproduction (using original materials) to purified distancing: architectural schematization, graphic abstraction of the lay-out and avoidance of all narrative, visual and sound overload. High Score was first presented together with diamonds and duochrome during the "Prix d'Art Robert Schuman" exhibition in november 2009 in France. In 2010 High Score was integrated in the "Ceci n'est pas un Casino" group show held at the Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain. From November 2010 to February 2011 the artwork was on show at the Villa Merkel in Esslingen, (D).
