The staircase leads to Takako Saito’s exhibition in the upper floor,
two halls are filled with their works.


I am happy to offer below three snapshots of Takako Saito
(*1929, since 1978 resident in Düsseldorf):






A "Portrait of Takako"
which shows her self-deprecating distance.

Narrow side of the sculpture.


A three-dimensional chess with 8 tiers reminds me of the efforts of Ferdinand Maack
in the early 20th century to popularize a space chess with eight 8 x 8 boards.


"Schachspiel im Wald" (Chess in the Forest) - all the chessmen consist of
apparently identical little clogs – they distinguish from one another
by different notches in the soles (underneath)!
