Minor PiecesNummer twaalf, variations on a theme: The King’s Gambit accepted, the number of stars in the sky and why a piano can’t be tuned or waiting for an earthquake

The exhibition will also include Nummer zes: Steinway grand piano, wake me up to go to sleep, and all the colors of the rainbow. In the film, the artist who is also a composer and classically trained pianist, sets out the history of the Steinway piano, subsequently enacting his desire to locate himself within its privilege and romantic grandiosity.

Guido van der Werve was recently awarded the Prix International d’Art Contemporain, La Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco and is currently short-listed for the Future Generation Art Prize. He has exhibited extensively including solo exhibitions at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC and the Hayward Gallery in London.
