Proposal for a performance work at Sergels Torg, Stockholm
This project was proposed by Annika Ström in 2016 as a public art commission, and should have taken place during nighttime at the Sergels Torg square in Stockholm. It consisted in a night concert, lasting approximately 15 minutes, where the Jönköping Chamber Choir would have sung the lyrics and music of Annika Ström: in particular, as the artist reports in the file donated to MoRE museum, it can be considered a larger scale version of the performance the artist did in 2015 at the Jönköping city cafe, with the Jönköping Chamber Choir and the conductor Ove Gotting, where they sang the “phrases that appeared on billboards around the Jonkoping and digital road signs on highway E4 nearby”.
Here in Stockholm the choir would have been introduced by “fifty loud skateboards with lanterns on wheels and on hoods”, the same conductor would have parachuted down, and when the skateboards would have moved a short distance away, finally silent, the choir would have sung the phrases projected on house facades around. The performance would have been closed by the skateboarders, with their lights lighted up one more time.
Sound recording and a vinyl record would have been produced after the show.
