salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears

A tragic story about lost love

Serlachius Manor 7.9.2024—23.3.2025

Tears and drops of blood and sweat create a tragic story about lost love and its chaotic emotional consequences.

Nastja Säde Rönkö’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, and created the work in connection with a mentored residency provided by it.
