Lundahl & Seitl are showing a new commission at the group exhibition urSenses, opening tomorrow. Symphony of a Missing Room is currently open in Switzerland, and a new work launches in Austria next month. 

urSenses, 20 September - 30 November 2014

Stiftelsen Färgfabriken, Lövholmsbrinken 1, 117 42 Stockholm

Our ability to imagine things that aren’t in front of us is an important factor in what makes us human, and may even be what distinguishes us from other animals. That the imagination is of fundamental importance for our survival is an indisputable fact. But this power is not something we are born with but something that we can develop and train. Research has shown that babies who do not get enough stimulation and human connection in their first six months find it more difficult to develop the emotional antennae that are so important for humans’ inner imagination. 

Lundahl & Seitl’s installation, Farkost (Craft), can be seen as a laboratory for this reasoning - as  visitors are prepared for an experience that is largely created by their inner sensations. The installation includes a darkened passage between the gallery and the world outside, through which visitors enter on a moving vessel in a horizontal position. The artists use Farkost to highlight the phenomenological layer of human experience, often more present in dreams, preparing visitors for a different way of experiencing artworks that are not usually shown in traditional gallery spaces. Here, both infants and adults confront the artwork on an equal plane as they are slowly pushed through the darkness, and born into the exhibition. The work can be seen as both a craft and a uterine space capsule. 

Lundahl & Seitl are also showing work in Switzerland & Austria...
