As a sculptures, it’s an autobiographical narration. The starting point was, the early and sudden death of my father, using the metaphor of the game of chess to engender the work. At the moment I didn’t know it, but his death would change my life forever. From that moment, given the circumstances and the closest family ties, I would be forced to live and play, conditioned by the rules of a game that would limit my freedom, playing a game in inferior condition.

“Jaque Mate al Rey”, presents, through the metaphor of the chess game, a symbolic reality, which speaks about relationships and family roles, and how a death,  can cause a real war, where power, greed, ambition emerges , jealousy and greed.
