ANNA LEONOWENS GALLERY // Marek Radke: The Way of the Life

This installation was created in connection with the artist’s reflections on life through the game of Mikado (aka: Pick-up Sticks). “As a child I dreamed that I could achieve everything in life if I only wanted to.  Today it shows that my path in life is as varied and as open as a game of Mikado: I win, I lose, I win…”
