More Info Works / Hönö


From the Swedish mainland a ferry takes you to the Hönö island. The artist made a trip to the island because of the special name that has a meaning both in Swedish and in Finnish: it signifies ‘hen island’ in Swedish and ‘tipsy’ in Finnish. On the soundtrack there is a peculiar message left in the artist’s answering machine.
