Import large .tiff file as sparse matrix

I have a large .tiff file (4.4gB, 79530 x 54980 values) with 1 band. Since only 16% of the values are valid, I was thinking it’s better to import the file as sparse matrix, to save RAM. When I first open it as np.array and then transform it into a sparse matrix using csr_matrix(), my kernel already crashes. See code
