In Chess Eva Berendes and Florian Baudrexel focus on the relation between the individual works they present and the traditional format of exhibition display. Equal attention is given to the presentation and to the actual work, so that the support-character of the staging devices is turned on its head to a point that diffuses what is sculpture and what is architecture/plinth. The sculptures, pictures and reliefs are, though different, very closely related to each other. Materials and shapes interact in various ways creating a sense of transition between the exhibition space and the work. The shelf-like plinth of Florian Baudrexel's wall sculpture 'G-Heit' has a styro-relief incorporated in it, which doubles as an overarching display for the inlaid collage and painting below it. Similarly, in Eva Berendes' bamboo sculpture 'Untitled (la dame)' a layered pedestal or curtain behind a sculpture are both modes of display that are integrated into the fabric of the works themselves as well as the atmosphere of the room. The sense of transition between the space and the work is also evoked through details such as the transparency of Berendes' screen 'Untitled(silver and gold)', or Baudrexel's sculpture 'At-Let', which moves through the window to the exterior of the gallery.
