Règle du jeu is the result of my Carte blanche PMU prize in France 2017. The work was first exhibited at Centre Pompidou and simultaneously published as a monograph by Filigranes editions. I continue to use Fluxus event scores as a starting point, but I have expanded the idea of the score and allowed myself to be influenced by a range of artists including film makers, photographers, painters and poets.
