Lundahl & Seitl: Symphony of a Missing Room
Archive of the forgotten and remembered
19 May — 8 June 2014
Imagination takes over — and the intangible becomes real
Each year the Royal Academy of Arts is transformed by the Summer Exhibition, as more than 1,000 works go on display in the world's biggest open-submission art show. But what is left after the art works have gone?

Lundahl & Seitl's 'Symphony of a Missing Room' is your chance to find out. Using multi-sensory technology, invisible dance and whispered illusion, it leads you on a collective and extremely personal journey through the Royal Academy's public and private spaces, revealing the building as never before.
Based in Stockholm and London, Lundahl & Seitl create a unique art work that dissolves the difference between the real and the virtual. With 'Symphony of a Missing Room', they offer an experience that will never be forgotten.
