salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears
single channel version, 2024, 13:59
If I crashed, I would bleed.
And if I bled,
I would be close to you,
if I bled enough, I would be with you.
Tears and drops of blood and sweat create a tragic story about lost love and its chaotic emotional consequences.
Nastja Säde Rönkkö’s (b. 1985) video installation is driven by a poetic text: intimate, ambiguous verses tell not only about love, but also about lost and found identity, a scarred planet and our ever-changing world.
Nastja Säde Rönkkö, who works with media art, text, installations, performances and many different communities, received the third Below Zero Prize (2023), granted by Beaconsfield Gallery London, Serlachius Museums and the Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland.
The single channel version of the work has been edited this year for Forum Box. The entire installation seen in Beaconsfield Gallery will open in Serlachius Museum 7.9.2024—23.3.2025.
Mediabox är Forum Box galleriets utrymme dedikerat till mediekonst. Programmet är samkurerat med AV-arkki.
Det finns tre steg till mediakonstutrymmet Mediabox, men verket finns även tillgängligt för visning på surfplatta på begäran.
