Talented sand artist talks of chess connection

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Remember this very nice post we carried a few days back:

Ukrainian sand artist wows all at Amber Chess 2011

Well, there is an interesting interview with this sand artist Kseniya Simonova at the ChessInTranslation website. Kseniya herself explains that the world of chess wasn’t foreign to her:

"I really love chess. When I was child I played in a chess club, while the main thing for me today is the special aesthetics of the pieces. Each has its own psychology and character… In general, I don’t consider chess a game. It’s theatre. I hope that in the sand story I performed here I managed to convey that."

Go on and read the full interview. You would like it.
