Marion Andrieu – COLOR CHESS XL
Donnerstag 17. März 2016, 19 Uhr
Color Chess XL could be seen as an imaginary dialogue between Malevitch and Johannes Itten. This dialogue translates into a game of chess in which the figures have been replaced by colours.
Color Chess XL is a sculpture, a painting and a giant chess game all in one, which develops three stages: 1/ the opening – 2/ the show´s duration – 3/ the Finissage.
1- “Abstract geometric”- 64 black and white cubes, representing the chess board, as well as 32 colored cubes (the figures) are piled on top of each other to form a sculpture placed in the center of the gallery.
2- The game: the day after the opening, the cubes will be rearranged to form a chess board, covering the ground surface of the entire gallery.
On every following day a chess move will be played by one of the participating players, who will be able to communicate their moves via internet. This means the window display changes, day by day, throughout the exhibition’s entire duration.
3- The final: The show will last 25 days, thus allowing 25 chess moves to be played. If the match hasn´t come to a conclusion by the end of this period, the two players will complete the game in person, at the Finissage.
