ART AT SALT

 
 

In collaboration with the The Finnish-Norwegian Cultural Institute we are presenting Kaarina Kaikkonen's massive installation “We Are Still The Same” in the Arctic Pyramid where you are invited to walk through Kaikkonen's tunnel of shirts. This is to feel free and to touch the fabric of a shirt reminding you of someone. Kaikkonen brings the reminiscent of people's lives from distant places and times. The tattered and torn everyday objects are framing the view of a prosperous Oslo, allowing us to spend time and find our own traces.

Bring your family, your friends, your lunchbox, your books, your daydreams. Extend the experience to a low trechold retreat, in the middle of Oslo, with Sauna Sessions during the weekends. 

Do touch the artworks.

 

“We are still the same”
Kaarina Kaikkonen (Fi) 
20. September – 

“In every shirt there is a story, because someone with a warm heart has been wearing it. All kind of people are together here, but we are still the same, we are no wiser than fish. We still act like fish, always going in a group, following each other in the same direction, like a shoal of fish. We are a part of nature, and nature is within us.” Artist Kaarina Kaikkonen 

Artist Kaarina Kaikkonen (f. 1952) has transformed sites in large scale internationally with personal garments since 1987. Hand in hand, 1200 shirts from people in Finland and Oslo are connected in the installation ‘We are still the same’ on the Arctic Pyramide Structure. Her work is presented in collaboration with The Finnish-Norwegian Cultural Institute.

Komafest: New Chapter - Library (2015-2018)
By Pøbel and Vardø Restored
8. SEPTEMBER – november 2018

Komafest: New Chapter is one of 110 artworks that have been accepted this year for the State Art Exhibition, Høstutstillingen. Specifically, it's a mobile library rebuilt in a Ural-4320, Russian military truck. The building materials for which originate from 40 buildings and homes have already been or will be demolished in the small fishing village of Teriberka, Russia. This material has been made available as a result of an ongoing forced relocation process. Teriberka is a community on the coast of the Barents Sea, which has a strong historical link to Vardø via the Pomor trade. This Library is part of a larger site-specific project that has been ongoing for three years, the initial concept for which was conceived by Pøbel in 2015. It has evolved over time and is now a collaboration between Pøbel, placemakers Vardø Restored. The core of the books in the library have been salvaged from the abandoned school and supplemented with material donated by community in Teriberka. The process of building the library, has a symbolic value as a meeting point for people from Vardø and Teriberka. Both communities, as a result of privitization, are gradually losing the right and opportunity to live from local resources. This is a story with a local voice but with a global perspective. The library is the starting point for the exchange of experiences and understanding of common challenges. Teriberka is a case study and possible future scenario for what can happen to local communities around the world when traditional living and industry disappear in favor of major external and commercial interests. In other words, the library is a mobile archive of a Teriberka's history and culture that is disappearing. The processes itself of building and community engagement can help to renew an awareness and pride about local cultural heritage. A Komafest, to awaken a future confidence and momentum in the local community and hope for a new chapter.  

 
 

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 2020 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.

03. VISIT SALT  kopi.jpg

“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

FAQ

Do you have a question? Maybe we have the answer below.
If not, you can e-mail us at info(at)salted.no.

 

I was at salt this weekend and forgot something. How can i get it back?

Everything people leave in the saunas or elsewhere at SALT, we take to the bar in Naustet or in Árdna. You can pick it up there during our opening hours.

Can I book a table?

No, we’re afraid not. If you want to secure a table inside Naustet or somewhere outside you have to come early. We have a large seating area outside so the chances to find a table are quite good.

 
 
 

Is there drop-in in the sauna?

Yes, there’s drop-in in both Sauna session, Morning bath and the Naustet sauna, but you’re not guaranteed a ticket. If it’s full, then it’s full. But we do have a waiting list in case someone leaves early.

Can I buy tickets in advance for the sauna?

Yes, that’s no problem. You can buy tickets for all our saunas at salted.no/sauna.

 

I went to SALT to see a DJ/band during sauna session, but she/they cancelled. Can I get a refund?

No, the ticket is for entrance to the sauna. Everything else happening is an extra treat.

Can I buy tickets for upcoming saunas and events happening in the bar at SALT?

No, all tickets to coming events must be bought online at salted.no. You can only buy tickets for events happening the current day in the bar.

 

I’ve bought a ticket for Sauna session from 3pm to 6pm. Can I stay longer than 6pm if I want?

Yes, but then you have to buy another ticket. Between 3pm and 6pm you can come and go as you please, but if you wish to stay longer you must buy a ticket for the next time slot.

Is there an age limit in the sauna?

No, we welcome all ages, shapes and sizes, except after 6pm during Sauna Sessions, then you have to be over 18. But if you wish to bring your child remember that everyone reacts differently to heat. Drink water before and after the sauna and take many breaks if you're staying a while. You know your child best.

 

I wish to book the Naustet sauna but isn’t allowed to press the button for the time slot I want. Can you help?

When you can’t press the button for a time slot that means it’s sold out.

How can I become a member of salt and get discounted tickets?

Per now we only have sauna memberships and they can be bought in the bar in Árdna during the opening hours. The membership costs 800nok per year and you’ll get discounted sauna session tickets.

 

We want to eat at SALT, is that possible?

Yes, but we only sell waffles and baked goods in Naustet, nothing more advanced. Outside you can find different food trucks and stalls during the summer, so just order from them and eat anywhere you like! You can find info about all the food stalls here.

Can we bring our own drinks to the sauna and SALT?

No, drinks must be bought in our bars - no exceptions.

 

Can I book tickets for the floating sauna?

Yes, but not through us. To book those tickets you need to contact our friends at KOK (kokoslo.no) or Sørenga badstue- og helårsbadeanstalt (sbha.no).
