The game is a voluntary act of rebellion against the laws of nature and of knowing how to be; an action of imaginative control against all the impositions to which we are forced to live in a world with so few dimensions and so many obligations.

Over the years the game becomes more serious, loses that liberating quality and becomes competition and strategy, if it does not disappear altogether.


This exhibition takes the structure of the adult game in which the objective is always to be the best, the champion, in a confrontation between territories following ancient practices inherited from the Pleistocene.

Six representatives of the five continents show their expertise in the art of not taking too seriously those laws of nature and good manners showing how the game manages to place everything visible in the place it deserves: the edge of the precipice.

Hachim Benohoudson, Miguel Calderón, Ana Hell, Jason Fulford, Robert Zhao Renhui, Prue Stent and Honey Long.
