Today: Claude Closky, Chess, 2005. Find it at http://s.k.i.online.fr/chess/.
Claude Closky (FR, 1963) is a French artist living in Paris. He works in a variety of media, including painting, installation, video and net art, in a signature style that revolves around the concept of conveying information and the connection between ideas and objects. Dike Blair wrote in Artforum that the The lightness of Closky's art belies the depth of its absurdist heredity. Working in a post-modernist mode, Closky's art works combine aspects of the Situationists, Fluxus, Beckett, Tall, Daniel Buren and Andy Warhol.
