In this work the artist has re-enacted John Cages’ formative audio and performance work 4’33” from 1952, wherein the performance consisted of “silence” on a piano. Exploring the relationship between the exhibition space and the audience, Enacting Time, establishes the audience as pivotal participant in this sound work.
