Symphony of a missing room – Lundahl & Seitl

Lundahl & Seitl’s artistic language, mixing visual art, sound art and performance, consists a universe on its own. No wonder they are already part of the most prestigious festivals and cultural events in Europe with their impossible-to-label artworks.

Symphony of a missing room takes place in museums, and its content is always re-designed to adapt to site specificity, to the particular Museum and the city it surrounds it. In Athens it will be hosted in the Acropolis Museum.A guided visit in the Museum turns into an incredible adventure in the “missing room”, only existing in the visitor’s imagination.

An indescribable work of art, a strange “performance” or a poetic experience about our relationship to art and to our visionary world, about memory and time. Visitors depart on both a collective and an extremely personal journey. An intimate, poetic artwork, offering a unique experience to the visitor, as it drifts him/her away to a personal trip where imagination and reality melt in each other.

Via wireless headphones, a voice takes visitors, led by performers, on an itinerary that traverses layers of physical and imaginary architecture of the museum and its curatorial space. By the use of multi-sensory illusions and binaural sound recordings the visitor’s attention is steered away from the visible and tangible world and diverted into a new perception of the self, time and space.
