In his latest exhibition, Puppets, Pawns, and Prophets, the Canadian artist, Marcel Dzama has taken his ideas from classic games and toys. The exhibit, which is on display at the David Zwirner gallery until the 11th May, features three videos inspired by chess, including Death Disco Dance, which is based on character pieces dancing ballet to disco music. You will also be able to watch Sister Squares, in which the screen is divided into panels like a chessboard, as kings and pawns battle it out in and endgame scenario. The final video depicts the similarities between chess and war: strategy, maneuvering your army, and one by one, eradicating the opposition.
The films will be accompanied by mask sculptures that were used by the actors in the film, plus a four-part series of drawings about myths and monsters, which mirror the the dancing showing on the videos.
