The Art of Chess

The latest load of codswallop at the Saatchi Gallery in London is The Art of Chess, which limps along until 3 October, admission free. RS&A, whatever that is, commissioned some of the world's worst artists to create new-look chess sets. All 16 will be displayed together for the first time. Shown is Tim Noble and Sue Webster's Deadalive, a woodland installation thingy with a chess set made of bronzes of dead animals on a hand-carved tree stump. I don't know if they'll be playing chess throughout the show in this state. Visit to find out (CLICK). I'll stick with Staunton pieces, thank you, Saatchi.
Update: CLICK for a Telegraph slide show of this junk.

I'd have to agree with you and reckon this might be one exhibit to pass on!

Glad you agree.
