Grain of Salt

Johanna Väisänen

This video is about dreams. The site in Grain of Salt, the Eemil Halonen Museum, has actually been abandoned twice: first as the cowhouse of a big farm, and later it passed into oblivion again as a decaying storage for plaster sculptures. Four whippets appear in the work, creating a dreamy atmosphere.
