Memoirs of the Abyss: Three Ecologies and More
Arctic Ice Chess
Arctic Ice Chess is an artwork by the Philippine artist Catherine Sarah Young, which was shown at SixtyEight Art Institute as part of the exhibition Memoirs of the Abyss: Three Ecologies and More. On several occasions since then, the chess game has been played by invited guests at various locations around Copenhagen, as part of the expanded programme of the exhibition proejct. The players have at the same time discussed topics related to climate change, rising temperatures, rising sea levels, and the consequences of these in relation to the Arctic in particular.
