A game is a voluntary act of rebellion against laws of nature and of customs. It is about creatively taking control of all the impositions that we are required to live by in this world with so few dimensions and so many obligations.
As years go by, games become more serious, they lose their liberating quality and transform into competition and strategy. That is if they don´t disappear entirely.
This exhibition adopts the structure of an adult game in which the objective is always to be «the best», the champion, in a face-off between territories adhering to the ancient practices inherited from the Pleistocene.
Here, six representatives from six continents demonstrate their skill in the art of not taking these laws of nature and conventions too seriously, showing how games are able to place all things visible where they belong: on the edge of the precipice.
