The first Gioco dell'oca by Marco Colombaioni was realised in 2009 in a small Sardinian town, Valledoria. A painted game invited the public to play and participate. This work is being interpreted by Cherimus at MAXXI Rome as part of the program Open Museum Open City | Esercizi di Rivoluzione curated by Hu Hanrou. In this version the animals are brought to live as costumes constructed by various artists and workshop participants. 

Here is the press release:

A variant of the classic Snakes and Ladders game, with 63 squares which symbolically retrace the stages of human life. Markers are the players themselves, as they move across a living board consisting of characters who represent animals: a jungle with which, along their way, they relate to the final square.

The Vertical Jungle; Salon Orizzonti Occupati - Vienna Secession

Here are some details and a close-up of my drawing that was in exhibition during Isola Art Center's salon in Utopian Pulse – Flares in the Darkroom. The drawing is part of a series of drawings and a story I wrote all under the title The Vertical Jungle. The prototype of the storybook have been in several exhibitions with Isola Art Center such as the exhibition 1:1 at MSUM in  Ljubljana. The book is being revised and improved, so more about that in the future.

(The photographs are not exactly the best, if anyone has some tips on how to photograph big drawings).








Utopian Pulse – Flares in the Darkroom


Here are some photographs from our show  Occupied Horizons at the Vienna Secession that ran from 23 -30 September. It was part of the project Utopian Pulse –Flares in the Darkroom curated by  Ines Doujak and Oliver Ressler. In typical Isola Art Center style it functioned like a work in progress and grew as the week went on.  A lot more happened then what is shown here, see Isola Art Center's website and Facebook.
