2000, Les Abattoirs
Toulouse, France

The new contemporary art museum in Toulouse called "Les Abattoirs" combines the old stone structure of a slaughterhouse above, and new cavernous below. The prime object in the museum's collection is a Picasso tapestry, Les Minotaurs, that spans the most prominent of the galleries.

Haha created a coin drop for Les Abattoirs. Visitors could bend down and deposit money in a slot in the glass floor of a catwalk above the gallery in the old slaughterhouse. The coins fell through a twisting and turning Plexiglas tube, eventually shooting out a drain pipe at the bottom and skittering across the floor to rest at the "feet" of the Picasso in a glittery torrent of currency.
