Another Kingdom Chess Set by Taras Yoom

About the Item

Another Kingdom Chess Set by Taras Yoom Limited Edition of 21 Dimensions: D 45 x W 45 x H 8 cm Materials: Metal, plastic, acrylic, wood, silicone. Combined technique with hack-working craft is used in chess. The manufacture of each set has the following stages: fine-detailed 3D printing from photopolymer plastic, molding, modeling, polymeric casting, manual processing of objects and acrylic painting. Chess «Another Kingdom» is from the U2BeBetter planet of Yoomoota universe. Yoomoota tried to make this age – old board game even more exciting, giving each figure a new image and character. This chess tells the story of a war between two kings. Each set is created by hand and embedded with an NFC chip — a digital certificate that validates, authenticates, and records the artwork ownership and provenance. Legend: I have tried to make the age-old board game even more exciting by giving each figure a new look and character. The pawn is a bold but giddy-brained lion. Having reached the enemy side, he turns into a subordinate of the queen, who bestows her power upon him. The rook is a siege tower, where archers are hiding inside. They are ready to pierce the enemy with their arrows at any moment. The knight is a clumsy warhorse, accustomed to blunder into an attack from around the corner. The bishop is a cunning chameleon with wide open eyes. He looks wide and from afar, cunningly approaching his rivals cornerwise, as he does not move straight after all. The queen is insanely beautiful, but unpredictable. She is like a beautiful, dangerous, thorny flower that grows in a forbidden forest. In fact, she would be the one who rules the kingdom, if it weren’t for the formality of the king — another way to prove that there is a great woman behind every successful man. The king has spent a great deal of time on his throne; however, he has nowhere to rush, since all roads lead to him. From the height of his throne, he looks at his invincible kingdom. I don’t think he wanted a bloody war, but maybe it was for the best. Zheltyshev Taras The artist/designer was born in the Siberian city of Tomsk in 1991. Parents, who were doctors and architects, influenced the choice of a future profession. In 2010, he entered the pediatric faculty of the Siberian Medical University. He had two passions at the university – biophysics and cartoon animation. Taras was engaged not only in laboratory part-time work, but also in an architectural bureau, creating interior items and art objects. In 2013, he took part and eventually won the Maleskin art competition, where he showed his illustrations. After that, art and passion for design began to conquer his soul. It gave him opportunity to constantly experiment and invent something new. So in 2014, while taking part in the international design competition A’ Design Award, he discovered new horizons in the design and in the same year, he showed projects in light fittings at Beijing Design Week 2014. His works were organic and functional. He was able to create natural images with a functionality. From this moment design, artistic activity and biophysics began to merge into a single unity. Taras created a multidisciplinary workshop where he studied many technologies and techniques for processing materials. Over time, his work blurred the boundary between visible reality and the hidden natural processes of organisms which he studied at a medical university. That led to prevalence of histological ornaments, molecular images and the living organisms’ colors and shapes in his works. Between 2014 and 2018, Taras won several design awards such as the A’ Design Award, Internetional Design Award, Skol Design Award and were featured at I Saloni in Milan and Salone Satelite in Moscow. Taras experimented on the visual functionality of an object that is able to change a person’s attitude to certain things. In 2019, he presented his works at the Collectible Fair in Brussels in the Young Designer category. After that he began to collaborate with two famous Moscow galleries of collectible design. At the same time, he starts cooperation with large factories for which he designed unique art collections of interior items. Again, in 2019, his works were shown in two galleries: Cosmoscow international exhibition of contemporary art in Moscow, and the collectible design exhibition Russian Antique & Art Fair. Since 2019, there have been many publications in magazines (Vogue, Elle decoration, Ad, Interior + Design, Interiors The Best, In / Ex, Forbes, DesignMet, The Rouge, Tatler) about an author who uses biological and natural knowledge with a personalisation approach in art design projects. Now Taras lives and works in Moscow in his workshop, where he constantly studies natural disciplines and creates objects with a soul. Taras declares: I create a person’s attitude to different processes and images. We are surrounded by countless details, complex systems that cannot be realized, but at the same time we live in harmony. I transmit a small part of the invisible world where organised molecules rule, they always strive for symmetry and do this through functional objects for human life. It is necessary to create contact, the exchange of information between complex systems and man, so that the latter can at least imagine them. When we get acquainted with a new device or image, we are getting knowledge about it, and this understanding alone can expand the boundaries in other areas of knowlegde.
