Opening Weekend PostX
This project is for Frederik Croene the final chapter in his adventures with old pianos. He donated his beloved collection of battered pianos to a new, local art initiative PostX. In this building, the former post office of the neighborhood Flora, artist Wouter Cox is developing an experimental workspace for artist residencies and other artistic happenings. For its first project, FloraX, a collective of artists living in the close surroundings of the building were asked to participate. Kristof Claeys, Marleen Duc and Wouter Cox are sculptural artists, Bert Seynaeve is a painter. Together they came up with the idea to construct a piano tower, paint it red and place it at the entrance of the safe of the post office. In this safe world famous tenor Zeger Vandersteene will sing Lieder from Winterreise by Franz Schubert, accompanied by local pianist Frederik Croene.
