Climate change is not a game. The entire planet has long since been affected by change. The exhibition “50 Shapes of Prey” shows how diverse the interactions of these changes are. The exhibition of selected figures by indigenous artists from Canada was created in close cooperation between the Museum Cerny and the Landesmuseum Liechtenstein.

For the construction of the exhibition was chosen the strategic board game of chess. Each move must be carefully considered to understand the changes in nature. (Image: Rosamaria Kubny)

“50 Shapes of Prey”

The exhibition uses the strategic board game, chess, to show the complexities of Earth’s changes. Opposite Natturalik, the ruler of the air and land, is Sedna, the ruler of the sea. To maintain the balance with nature, each move of the game must be carefully considered, because a change on one side, also triggers one on the other. The shaman, Mir-Susne-Hum, is at the center as a mediator. At the same time, images from the Arctic show this change. In addition, there is the 50th figure, namely the human being.

The individual works of art are listed in a brochure and are explained in an understandable way for the visitors.
