Since February, three huge wooden objects have appeared on the beaches of Schiermonnikoog, a Dutch island. They are shaped like pianos, although they look more like they're shipwrecked vessels the sea has brought ashore by chance. However, there isn't anything of random in this striking sight. It's actually an intallation to promote another edition of the famous classical music festival put together by Schiermonnikoog, that will take place during the month of October and which, this year, will be dedicated to Russian composers.
The author of this work of art is, as of this moment, unknown. The festival organization hasn't said a word about it and it isn't very important, anyway. What really matters is the impact and the serene, but effective, advertisement the scultures have been able to get across. But, let us not forget its aesthetic side. The land art, or landscape art, has always given us works of breathtaking beauty and these three pianos are no exception, emerging from the water and the dunes, and cutting through the blue sky.
