Kinderszenen : How to slack off during piano practice
by zhaoyuefan
21 x 29.7 cm

Kinderszenen:how to slack off during piano practice is a sheet music version of zhaoyuefan’s 13 acts performance, recreating the artist childhood memory of practicing piano. For 20 minutes, the audience can only hear the extremely monotonous finger exercises, while the performer's movements on the piano are constantly changing. The tension between the piano (a large, heavy European classical instrument) and the performer (a small Asian woman) throughout the performance indicated multi-layers of patriarchal power structure in the society, reflecting western classical music education from a feminist and postcolonial perspective.
