Let Me Lose Myself is an audio guide to the Skogskyrkogården (Woodland cemetery) in Stockholm.
The artist invited a group of people to send him their positions on the subject of uncertainty. The submissions included mathematical formulae, photographs, diary entries, intimate text messages, recipes, literary quotations, audio recordings and scenes from films. The poet and playwright Genna Gardini was then commissioned to spend time with these ideas and to be influenced by them. Gardini collated and edited the material and wrote a text that would become the underlying script for the piece. Actress Josefin Ljungman read the text, directed by the artist, and the piece was edited and mixed for headphones. The audio guide can be downloaded for free at www.letmelosemyself.com As is the nature of the subject, there are no further instructions or prescribed path for listeners to walk along.
The project was curated by Bettina Schultz for CCseven, with the collaboration of EMS, Anneli Bäckman, Joanna Sandell and Botkyrka Konstall. Photograph by Alexander Benz.
