The video Sandali is part of the installation.The blessing of a Sandali is that the whole family can sit around like a 'meeting piont' it to keep warm. Their are legs tucked under the blankets that cover the rectangular wooden frame that is placed over the brazier to keep the heat in. My 'Sadali' that is not part of any home, family or place. It is created to exist of a short my moment but it does not belong to me. I visit and leave.  -Jeanno Gaussi-.
