Garden of Ghost Flowers

Lundahl & Seitl and Untold Garden

7-10 April 2022


Garden of Ghost Flowers is a virtual being that feeds on the voices of those who visit it.

It is inspired in part by two things; firstly the sociological concept of resonance, defined by sociologist Hartmut Rosa as a mode of interacting with the world that is not based on control, but rather in an attitude of open listening through which one can be truly affected by the other. Secondly, it is inspired by Monotropa Uniflora, commonly known as the ghost flower, a plant that abandoned photosynthesis, survives in darkness, and feeds on the fungal web in the earth's soil.

The experience takes place in a biosphere that holds a digital life-form modelled after the traits of the ghost flower - an entity that feeds on human resonance: networks of human qualities, such as listening, caring, and adapting, expressed through the voices of the visitors. The life cycle of the Ghost Flower lasts for 20 minutes and can accommodate a group of up to 20 people, the vocal interactions of which form a unique biotope from which the digital flower grows. Some groups are deserts, some are lush forests, while others are something else entirely.

At first, the growing flower might be fragile and tender, but as soon as it gains strength from the collective resonance, it grows and thrives, subsuming the group until it blurs the boundaries of its constituents. Like with its biological counterpart, it is uncertain if the virtual Ghost Flower is symbiotic or parasitic. Where does the human end and the flower begin?

As the object to create resonance is the human voice, we invite you to the challenge of not using your voice for one hour before entering the biosphere.

Lundahl & Seitl, Monograph, Solo Exhibition, Norrtälje Art Gallery 17/10 - 29/11 2020

Lundahl & Seitl's works of art are philosophical investigations of boundaries and connections between the living, different objects, places and environments. The works have often been created as commissions on behalf of museums, art galleries or biennials from around the world and this is the first time we will see their works from different periods: from 2014 - 2020, simultaneously in one and the same exhibition.

The exhibition at Norrtälje Art Gallery is based on how their art relates to and is defined in relation to other artists' works, institutions and disciplines. From the start of their collaboration in 2005, Lundahl & Seitl have devoted themselves to the in-depth research of how perception acts as an active medium. Where and when do works of art exist?

20.00–20.30 AmissingRoom, Lundahl & Seitl a sound piece for two people at home:

‘AmissingRoom’ (2020) starts in front of the window inside your house. Although the piece takes place inside a home it pays more attention to absent spaces. It is an imaginary museum where artworks from different centuries float free from their bibliographic anchorings.

To download the app, click here (Apple) or here (Play) Creative Technology by DVA.

Symphony of a Missing Room premiered at National Museum in Stockholm in 2009, and has since then been presented at 20 museums, biennales and festivals such as Martin Gropius Bau / Berliner Festspiele, Royal Academy of Arts in London, Momentum 8 Nordic Biennale of Contemporary Art, Centre Pompidou-Metz, The Acropolis museum in Athens and Kochi-Muziris Biennale in India, amongst others.

20.30-21.00 A moderated talk and Q&A with Lundahl & Seitl and Rebecka Wigh Abrahamsson
In Swedish.

Currently the duo is working on a new commission of the Symphony-piece for the Uppsala Art Museum, in which the artist and writer Peter Weiss plays a significant role. Through the concept of ekphrasis, the piece researches the seamless shift in position between physical and virtual museum spaces and art objects, as well as how this is mutually crafted by the imagination of the artist and beholder.-

Not Here Alone, Nor for Ourselves Alone


24th June 2020

This event is created in partnership with STUK, Uppsala Museum of Art, Centre Pompidou-Metz and Berlin Artlink.

Taking Lundahl & Seitl's new adaptation: AmissingRoom as a starting point, we invite you to an evening of reflection upon the lockdown period, to question the affordances of reciprocity and presence in times of physical distancing, and to consider how we can balance resilience and resistance when adapting to a changing environment.

You are invited to enter AmissingRoom, a score for two people 'being at hand', at 8 pm CET in front of your window.

Once you have experienced the app at home, we hope you will join us on zoom at 9 PM CET, where Lundahl & Seitl will be in conversation with Karen Verschooren, art curator at STUK (BE) co-commissioner of AmissingRoom for around 30 minutes. This followed by audience reflections and a 15 minute Q&A.

Setting the Stage - the background to AmissingRoom

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, digitalization and surveillance accelerated, laws were reconstituted and living habits altered around the world.

Yet, confronted with this rapid transformation, how can we ensure to keep alive what should only be temporarily altered? How can we protect that which: cannot (yet) be digitalized, risks becoming extinct, or will be forgotten if not practised or cared for in this present.

With lockdowns postponing or cancelling most cultural events for the rest of the year, we asked ourselves; could our work, Symphony of a Missing Room, which is dependent on its visitors, at least temporarily survive through adaptation outside the settings of a cultural institution?

In March 2020, Symphony therefore transmuted into an app: AmissingRoom: a score for two people to enact the artwork in a domestic setting.


The artwork Symphony of a Missing Room was conceived in and for the context of museums, with over a decade of research; a multitude of ideas, thoughts and reflections from over 20 international museums and biennales, virtually accumulated inside its body. It is reminiscent of how individuals from different generations live side by side, interact with each other, but somewhat fail to coincide and share each other’s realities. Inside the missing room, visitors pass through walls, into tunnels that travel through a network of past exhibitions and museums. Other artists, dead and alive, far and near, echo inside the symphony as an infinite conversation.


The artwork AmissingRoom places us in a liminal room, a speculative future where coming generations no longer share our present perceptual sensibilities to experience art. AmissingRoom is nothing that you look at on a screen, as with Visual AR artworks where a digital object appears superimposed in the room. Rather, it is a process between two people using their phones as makeshift VR headsets.

Led by the artwork's score, you close your eyes, and the voice in your headphones synchronizes your movement in space with a sound architecture, carried by the unseen hands of your friend. The artwork is thus the phenomena that emerge. More than the sum of its parts, it is a reciprocal space with dimensions measured and received by the participants' imaginations.

Words fail those experiences existing beyond descriptive language. And in the face of this, Lundahl and Seitl have spun their poetry into syncopated verse, a counterpoint between the unknowable and the unsayable. They have paired Agnoseology with the Unsayable, immersing you within an experience as majestic, as it is disquieting, just there, . . . . right there, . . . . . yet, forever adrift from language.
