Seated Musical Accumulation

At the centre of this installation by Arman is an unusual stage for orchestras constituted by a cavea, on whose steps one can make out variously shaped iron chairs imprisoned in the armoured concrete. Trumpets and other musical instruments emerge from the podium intended for an imaginary conductor in front of the stage. The work was exhibited in the Sempione Park together with another 11 pieces for the XV Triennale in 1973.
