Description What is insanity? There isn’t an answer.
Can insanity be made into a representation, or be performed? No.

Where is the locus of insanity? In between people.
From these questions begins Sanna Kekäläinen’s new work its journey to the concept of insanity. Important things are never in one individual, but always in between people, metaphorically in between two human beings. Divinity and insanity are in between two human beings.
Insanity is also something new and unprecedented. Three insane inventions: bicycle (1861), guillotine (1792), electric shock treatment (1937). Three insane events: Columbus thought he was in India (1492), the Holocaust (1941-45), walking on the Moon (1969).
Poet Gunnar Björling (1887-1960) who is quoted in the work, is the most significant Finnish modernist poet and was considered mad.
