Friday, 12 October, 2012 | 11:00 AM - 03:00 PM
September 28 - October 27, 2012
Arrangement for a Silent Orchestra is a painting and video project which explores the gradual dissolution of culture in contemporary society through the symbolic ruin of a personal and cultural icon, the violin. Using the violin as a metaphor, the artist intends to raise questions about the relationship between increasing technology and diminishing cultural heritage.
