Leszek Knaflewski, Concerto for Coffin (Koncert na trumnę), Galeria Wschodnia, Łódź, 1999

A record of the performance Concerto for Coffin by Leszek Knaflewski in 1999 at Galeria Wschodnia in Łódź.

For purposes of his actions Knaflewski built objects to serve as instruments, which he then played to create an acoustic installation space. In the audio performance Concerto for Coffin the artist played on the sound box of a coffin, generating sounds with an amplification system. The artist said of this instrument, “The coffin is an unambiguous symbol. In my actions I am striving to expand its meanings.” Each of Knaflewski’s concerts was a unique event, as improvisation played a major role.
