Sakatti is a two channel video installation and a collection of small painted pictures based on fieldwork and material filmed on Viiankiaapa swamp, Northern Finland in the summer 2016. Because of a large-scale mineral reserve found under the swamp, it is a site of intense mineral exploration. Sakatti is a poetic close-up journey into the swamp’s existence in the world of humans and nonhuman animals, multiple time scales and its overlapping meanings.
