Matchplay is about the idealistic quest to find a perfect love. The viewer walks into a room transformed into a golf range. On each side wall, there are video projections of a woman and a man practicing hitting golf balls towards a target on the back wall. Audio is heard of birds chirping and people applauding and commensurating with the successes and failures of the golfers. The viewer is welcome to also take shots at the target. A marker is provided for the audience member to write a word on the ball they are about to hit, whether it be the name of a ex-lover or someone they pine after. The golfer aims for the impossible task of making a hole-in-one located on the wall in front of them, a metaphor for finding a perfect love.
