GABRIEL OROZCO: In Horses Running Endlessly, you have a chess board multiplied by four. Instead of two colors, you have four colors. And then, I take out all the pieces and the only thing I did was to multiply it and make just horses, knights. So then, the chess field became a landscape and horses are running freely there. So it’s not a battlefield any more. It’s more just like a topographical landscape, geometrical landscape.
