Laurent Perbos

Came across some work by Laurent Perbos that I thought was pretty funny. I remember back at artschool my friend Dave installed a ping pong table in the concourse gallery. The great thing about it was he made the table incredibly skinny to fit a tiny gap (only a few inches) between the wall and the hand rail for the staircase. Had a net, paddles, everything – this instantly reminded me of that.
