About Chess Qizi 棋子

Chess Qizi 棋子 is the title of the exhibition by Pedro Bakker at the Chinese European Art Centre (CEAC) in Xiamen, China. The rumours about the performance by Pedro bakker and Wang Yunke at the opening of the exhibition gave rise to this publication. The performance is not an advocacy of sexual harassment. On the contrary the artist seems more likely to fail as a domineering macho. Three large drawings in the group exhibition Rolling Snowball, Nanjing at the Art Museum of Nanjing University of Arts (AMNUA) strengthen this explanation. The artist has expressed in "Burnt Home 6", L'Éternel Retour 7 and Foot Woo a male inability.
