Program

ABOUT SALT

SALT is a nomadic art project with pyramidal constructions called “hesjer”, which are based on traditional coastal construction methods. Norway has one of the world’s longest coastlines and an ancient coastal culture where the people have fished in agreement with nature. The fishermen set up fishracks to dry the fish in the wind. Dried fish did not only give people nourishment, but also became an export article that has been significant in regards to the construction of Norway.

The pyramidal structures have been developed in collaboration with architect Sami Rintala. Árdna, The Arctic Pyramid, Langhuset and Naustet all make SALT an unique place for experiences and reflection where a diversity of people can be gathered to experience art and discuss today’s major challenges. The sea is crucial for the future of the planet. How can we ensure a sustainable sea for future generations? What can we learn from the coastal people’s ability to live with and out of nature?

SALT was first erected on Sandhornøya in Nordland in 2014. The project has since visited Bergen and is now in Oslo until 2018 when the journey continues to the north. Thus, SALT Oslo becomes a two-year festival. The program includes concerts, lectures, exhibitions, debates and family events. Throughout all seasons visitors can relax in the sauna, quench their thirst and eat tasty food from the sea.

Previous artist: Yang Fudong, BJ Nilsen, HC Gilje, Justin Bennett, Jana Winderen, Signe Lidén, Tatjana Gorbachewskaja & Katya Larina, Cecilie Jonsson, Lonnie Holley, Margrethe Pettersen and Edvine Larssen.

“When night falls, the festival takes on an even more Norwegian earthiness. There's a bonfire, but i head to the "amphisauna” to warm up properly. I sip a beer in the prism-like oven, which can fit up to 120 people and has a huge window at the front so you can look out over the beach. With a bar at the back and deep house music pumping, it feels more like a club than a sauna”
The Guardian, SALT Sandhornøy 2014
