the piano, a 100 year old august foerster, was already meant for destruction in 1977.
thomas lehn rescued it for practising and in 1982 it ended up in the apartment, where i am living since 2000.
after 8 years, my wife and me decided to make room for a real instrument and i took the opportunity, to give the old grand a proper farewell during the cologne art fair (flyer).
with the assistance of ben patterson of some fluxus fame, jozef cseres, performer and professor of aesthetics from slovakia and synthesizer-virtuoso thomas lehn the piano was deconstructed and the leftovers distributed to the audience.
