Your Songs Take Me To A Place I've Never Been

Johanna Lecklin

Three people sing an especially composed song in which the lyrics have been based on fan letters meant for the late musician Nike Drake. The visuals are a reference to a series of photographs of Drake himself standing in front of a brick wall as people pass him by. ‘Your Songs Transport Me to A Place I've Never Been’ can be exhibited as a three-channel video installation or as a single channel split screen version.
