'The Silent Piano' is an entirely sculpted monochrome grey grand piano; an unplayable, deaf-mute interpretation of the instrument. On top of the piano is a still life of empty photo frames, books, drinks, cigarettes.
Grand pianos often end up silenced and gathering dust in country houses or other bourgeois haunts. They have the same stifled presence as libraries of old books that haven’t been opened in a very long time. The sound, the music, is left to the imagination.
