Artists/collaborators Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla are known for their conceptual artworks which are a combination of performance and sculpture.  Here is a New York Times article about the duo.  Make sure to watch the video of the 2008 performance, "Stop, Repair, Prepare: Variations on 'Ode to Joy' for a Prepared Piano."  In it, a musician stands in the center of a piano which has a hole cut through the center and plays the last movement of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, upside-down, whilst perambulating, piano in tow.
