The works of the 14 artists exhibited in Galerie Tanit's "From Sound to Silence" explore the different meanings and uses of sound, and its absence. The drawings, paintings, photos, sculptures and installations on show touch upon the way sound is entwined in our lives, and its malleable nature – the way its meaning differs depending on who's listening, which sounds are played or not.The one commission, the installation "Arsenal," by composer and pianist Cynthia Zaven, is a deconstructed piano, presenting a thoughtful look at the bare bones of the instrument.This installation can be read as a metaphor for the way polities or societies function – a well-oiled machine designed to comply with what keys are pressed by authorities, but voiceless and disconnected on an individual basis.The piano's strings have been cut, so the only sound is a rhythmic drumming, resembling a military march, without the number's emotive tonalities.
