Rirkrit Tiravanija has created a large scale Mikado (pick a stick) game. Its aim is not points but fortunes and fluxus-performances which are hidden behind the Chinese numbers printed on the 24 sticks. After having drawn a stick, the player is entitled to disclose a specific fortune or performance-instruction by picking one of the 24 custom made stamps from a board and printing it on a sheet of paper. The artist invites the visitors to try their luck and offers a stage for individual interpretations of the different fluxus-performances. The edition, consisting of 24 wooden sticks, each 90 cm long, and a wooden board with 24 custom made stamps containing fortunes and fluxus instructions, is published in an Edition of 16.
