Pinball Communion

Pinball Communion

Celeste Prize, 2014 (Painting & Drawing)

Announcement: Short-listed work

The work ‘Pinball Communion’ has been short-listed by New York Artist-Curator Pedro Vélez for the Celeste Prize 2014 in the painting and drawing category.

Starting with Alfred Korzybski's a map is not the territory, Pinball Communion explores the contemporary position of institutional structures using non-secular architecture, found imagery, 3D drawing and objects to prompt questions of 'the game.'

'The institution. A Machine. We become baptised, succumb to its doctrines, kneel before its glory, its beliefs. We will no longer be pagans or primitives, forced to wear the earth. No, it will feed us what we must know. It will shape our direction and ensure that we are reminded of the base alternative should we falter. Traps exist at every corner. And opportunities for salvation.'
— The Artist, Tyler Mallison
