Jogo de Xadrez

This series consists of an architectural photo triptych inspired by the chessboard. I chose for each work, a name of a corresponding component from the rules of chess, which in turn consists of 6 types of pieces, forming altogether 16 pieces on the board. As my series is comprised of a triptych, it was necessary that my choice was limited to only 3 of the 6 types of pieces in the game. The selection criteria was based on the degree of importance in the game. I also took into account the real meaning of each piece, selecting those that had any human relationship thus: King, Queen and Bishop.

Chess is a game that involves science, strategy and tactics, as it does not contain the element of luck. It is one of the most popular games in the world and has as enthusiastic artists Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray.
