BOARD GAMES

2009-2015. Board Games with copies of the original patents. Various materials.

Board games is series of games never published or that have disappeared completely from the market. Of these games, and of their authors, no trace remains except the project and the rules contained in the original patent. Each game is called by the name of its inventor, because the games did not have  specific titles. As prototypes, the rules are sometimes incomplete, unclear or even absent. Players have to interpret the game and build new rules, reinventing the goals and trying to get the intentions of the inventor.

L’ITALIA IN CERCHIO

2010. Prototype games inspired by the Tour of Italy 1934.

A choral work composed by a series of games invented by a group of artists and friends who set out a new and crazy map of Italy. The full game, entirely feasible in succession, is left to the public, along with dice, cards, checkers and rules.
The starting point of the work lies in the genesis of a game, made up of rules being drawn, close to sharing, testing, negotiation. Each player is expected to discuss a rule, to imagine a new one, to invent a plot, a possible ending.

STAR TIKI

2011-2012. Workshop, board game.

Star Tiki is a board game invented in the autumn of 2011 during the workshop “The adventures of Kon Tiki”, GAMeC, Galleria d’arte moderna e contemporanea di Bergamo.
During the workshops we developed a game prototype from the ideas and suggestions of each participant. Star Tiki is also the name of the gaming group that was formed during the workshop, and that disseminated the game in different contexts, deforming it, expanding it, shrinking it, consuming it, reinventing it.

Star Tiki is formed by:
Adriano Rossi, Leonardo Chiappini, Letizia Del Prato, Matteo Rubbi, Nicole Piccaluga, Primavera Fumagalli, Raffaella Rota, Roberto Pezzotta, Valeria Ingignoli
