Performance and installation. Vallisaari, Helsinki. 2018.

“Insel” was a site sensitive performance that invited the audience to travel to the island of Vallisaari, just off the coast of Helsinki, Finland. Dealing with questions of home, abandonment, archaeology and memory, it consisted of two audio installations, a room installation, and a one-on-one performance. As part of the process I collected drift matter from the shores of the island where I spent several weeks. From some o the materials I created a bench and a stool that formed the room installation together with pieces of driftwood and other found objects.

“The boat to Vallisaari”
The audience listened to this track using headphones and a mp3 player. The length of it corresponds roughly with the duration of the ferry trip from Helsinki to the island of Vallisaari.
