Hakasalmi Villa / Mika Haaranen: Unen ääret

Hakasalmi Villa
Mika Haaranen: Unen ääret

Unen ääret (Edges of Dreams), projected on to the façade of the villa, was inspired by the history of the pink building and its inhabitants: remembrances, memories and dreams. What are the resemblances between memories and dreams? How close are they to wakefulness? The classical-style building is seen through dreamlike visions formed by painted films and shadow patterns. The accompanying music is composed by Aake Otsala.

Performance time: Daily from 5 pm to 10 pm
