According to the artist, ‘in YNVIC, I painted the whole room into a three-dimensional explosive abstract painting. A sofa was thrown up on the wall and bean bags hovered inside the space like painted planets (or grapes if you like). Each performer was painted as the wall, colouring hair, face and clothes. It was some sort of floating chaos without words and logical censorship determined by rhythm and moods, aiming for an atmosphere in between sport and funeral’. For her performance as part of the Rapid Pulse Performance Art Festival she plans to 'develop an alternate language using my voice only. I experience a lot of hierarchy in language, and I want to create a form of communication where everyone can meet at the same level. The language is abstract and based on rhythm, moods and various combinations of consonants and vowels. It refers to Kurt Schwitters; Ursonate or Sidsel Endresen way of singing. Also Wu-Tang Clan's own slang master Raekwon makes his own language inspired by Kung Fu, cartoons or street slap.’ Other participating artists include Marilyn Arsem, Jelili Atiku, Yolanda Benalba, Ayana Evans and Marcel Sparmann.

According to the organisers, 'the exhibition includes works by four Norwegian artists, each of whom explores his or her unique personal space while leaning on common cultural paradigms. The curator has brought together works by artists who have never exhibited together before based on principles less related to their aesthetic interchange and more on how they correspond to a single theme expressed as "overcoming". The premise of the curator's choice was the thesis expressed by the writer and thinker and local genius Daniil Kharms that the artist, as a subject of art, is destined to constantly overcome: the resistance of materials, of social stereotypes, of previous historical failure, everyday challenges… At the same time real "art has to act in such a way as to pass through walls"'.
