Forgotten piano in an abandoned castle in France. Artwork realized in 2018. I take a small path in the forest, seeing a medieval castle far away. Vegetation begins to invade the building, the humidity is palpable. I manage to make my way through the tall grass, following the path of the animals. I see the main entrance, I still don’t know if the building is open. The veranda attracts me, I approach quietly. Across the veranda, I can see a piano, where music and art still had their place a few years ago. I enter easily the building, everything is open, and walk towards the king’s instrument. I look at it for a long time. Si Sol Fa Sol Fa Mi. I can’t help but play a few notes of Chopin, make it sound one last time before it all goes away.

Forgotten piano in an abandoned sanatorium in Germany. Artwork realized in 2014. It is the largest abandoned place I have ever visited. This sanatorium has more than sixty different buildings. A long exploration begins. I discover the buildings little by little. Some are closed, others open. I hope so much that the pianos are still there, accessible and not behind a closed door. I am lucky, after a few hours, I discover the first piano. And what a scene! It’s incredible! It floats like a cloud. Since I started my artistic work on forgotten pianos, it is the first time that a piano reveals itself in such a striking way.
