Three landmark installations presenting completely new interpretations of Chopin’s music, integrating some of his most popular piano works with high technology to create powerful visual accompaniments, revealing the timeless power and appeal of Chopin’s music well beyond conventional concert-hall recitals.
The exhibition is a collection of interactive installations that transplant Chopin's work to the terrain of contemporary art and digital media. Three new audiovisual installations have been created by three Polish artists – Józef Robakowski, Jarosław Kapuściński and Paweł Janicki – using unconventional strategies to engage with music. Frédéric Chopin's works are treated as a basis for reinterpretation, defragmentation and reconstruction, and their new nonlinear structure is enhanced by the relationship between sound and image.
Organised jointly by the Polish Cultural Institute, the WRO Art Center in Wrocław and Stanford University, as part of Chopin 2010 Anniversary Year.
