Chess of Rites

2019, 90×90 cm, cotton and silk, 32 custom engraved figures from metal, Edition: Unique

Chess of Rites is a chess game that initially addresses the player’s subconscious, guiding them towards seeking out and noticing hidden elements, lost in the individual’s subconscious, through the processes of self-psychoanalysis. Knezović lays the foundation for them with a chessboard, a white tapestry of cloth and silk with embroidered inscriptions of various emotional and psychological stages of development, while the figures, reduced to equal circles, represent different characteristics or values of identity.
