The newest work - piece for two pianos and the gallery space is an attempt to subordinate the gallery area, with their architectural specification to the musical’ ideas. I imagine that the interior of the Oko/Ucho will be at the same time  an installation and an musical instrument.  The space, which will be inscribe by the form of art and music, the place which will be inscribe by two pianos.  M.P.
