Everything is in the title. The video game is not only a distraction for geeks, it is an art too. And the last exhibition at the Art Ludique museum has succeeded in simply and smartly showing it to us.
800 pieces and installations punctuate the visit : creation of urban universes from existing and reinvented cities, of imaginary and fairy worlds, of heroes and creatures and also rewriting of History.
Each piece is a painting or a photograph, each face seems alive.
More over an installation « Assassin’s Creed Unity » has been created for the exhibition and enables the visitor to walk in a full-scale Paris during Revolution.
A very nice and playful moment.
No need to be player to enjoy it, believe me !
Only drawback : the price. 15,50€ for a little more than 1 hour of visit, it is a little bit expensive.
A piece of advice: book your ticket in advance, and Sunday 6 pm is a perfect time, there was not too much people a little while ago !
