Two clothes hangers seem like the ‘King’ and ‘Queen’ in international chess and the upside-down bats are composed of this work. ‘King’ and ‘Queen’ sculptures are made by a hundred years beam, which are placed on a 30cm height base in golden spiral. The audience could feel the sense of swirling from it. 21 bats in 9 different forms hang upside-down around ‘King’ and ‘Queen’. The bats are made of casting aluminium and each mouth of them are exaggerated to the horn, which seems intermittently transmit the signal. ‘King’, ‘Queen’ and the sleeping bats interact with each other, creating absurd but tranquil scene.
