Paul Pfeiffer

Pfeiffer has created a sculpture based on the “playroom” from legendary basketball player Wilt Chamberlain’s Los Angeles mansion. Built in 1971 to Chamberlain’s specifications, the mansion was widely publicized in the press as a palace dedicated to luxury and sensual pleasure. The exhibition also includes a video work, based on an 8mm home movie from the 1970s showing a group of adults and children on a trip to the zoo. A second film work, based on footage from basketball games from the 1950s through the 1990s, is a rhythmic montage focusing on the flutter of the net and the strobe of flashbulbs at the climactic moment when the ball goes through the hoop. Finally, a laconic, meditative group of photographs rounds out the exhibition.
