“My project is called “Tables of Comparison”. It is composed of two pairs of tables, reframed to conceal the objects being compared (the headings are nearly totally cut off). Only data with no information value remains, devoid of all functionality. So that although each table presents results opposite to it’s mate, they seem to indicate equivalent evaluations.” Claude Closky

Claude Closky (born 1963) lives and works in Paris, France. Over the last few years he has enjoyed pointing out, through humorous and highly effective works of art, the arbitrary and absurd nature of the signs and models produced by the media. Closky proceeds by “sampling” all kinds of everyday communications, which he appropriates, accumulates, overturns, loops… to make into slide shows, videos, series of drawings, collages and photographs, publications, or internet sites .
