Game for 4 (Okey with punishment)

Game for 4 (Okey with punishment), 2014

Franziska Koch

Sinopale 5, “Clusters and Crystals: Observing at Point Zero”
Curator: Dimitrina Sevova

“Game for 4” connects to a lived moment which took place before the exhibition in Sinop. The artist Franziska Koch and the art coordinator Juliane Saupe joined the game community of five women, who introduced them to the game “Okey with punishment”. To conclude their time together Koch translated one of the games to a digital score, which is introduced in the exhibition as a piece of music. The 13 cards’ numbers refer to a notation sequence, played on the “Grand Piano” of an accessible music software. A score, an instrument and a spatial narrative emerge from these collective processes of play and their social connections.
