ON THE OLD POSTAL ROAD
On the Old Postal Road is an art work by the cross-disciplinary artist collective Lintutorni.
The group made a two-day walk along the old postal road from Mynämäki to Turku, distributing its own newspaper, encountering inhabitants and landscapes on the way, as well as delivering letters from near and far. Project started with an evening event at Mynämäki, with performances from Lintutorni members and local people.
