A musical performance shot on an upstate farm forms the basis of this multichannel video installation by Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson. Gathering a group of nine musician friends, Kjartansson captured them each separately playing an instrument in one of nine different rooms in the farmhouse. He then edited their performances together to create a single composition he describes as a “feminine nihilistic gospel song.” The piece is named for the final album by Swedish pop superact ABBA, recorded just before the band's breakup.
