Play the Art
|<5:5:3> by Paul Kikuchi|
Kikuchi scours surplus stores, salvage yards, and street corners to find discarded metal he fashions into musical instruments. His work, both aurally and visually, signals an uneasy commingling of childhood play with machinistic violence. Kikuchi's two percussion sculptures -- Artillery Welcome Bell and <5:5:3> -- invite the visitor to play and reflect on the meaning of sounds made from detonated shells and saw blades.
