Vic Gentils: The Chess Set

Vic Gentils: The Chess Set
ANTWERP  •  Middelheim Museum  •  Ongoing

The Middelheim Museum presents The Chess Set (1966-67) by Vic Gentils (1919-1997, Belgium). This monumental installation with thirty-two pieces represents a turning point in Gentils’ oeuvre. The scenography reinforces the concept of a battle or game of chess, but also offers the physical possibility of viewing the installation from different perspectives, for a longer period and in total comfort.

Along with this piece, Pierced by Rezsö Berczeller (1912-1992, Hungary) will also be on display. The Hungarian’s oeuvre is  influenced by the Second World War and the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, and is almost entirely devoted to the downfall of man.
