In 2009 and 2011 Itonje Søimer Guttormsen participated in KiN LAB – Kjærringøy Land Art Bienale, together with some great artist from around the world. In 2009 she got the pleasure of a collaboration with sound artist Elin Vister.Out of this came the installation ”Synest(es)i”, the performance ”Ants on duty”, and the video work ”Synest(es)i for two Ruths and some cows”.
In 2011 Itonje went solo with the performance ”Into the woods/The mystery of ADA”, where she made a scenario to make sense of the found of a rucksack in the woods filled with books, Itonjes confirmation bible from 1995, a small horse, some weird instructions of children songs and karate, a camera containing videos of ADA roving Kjærringøy, an iPod containing works from ”The Knights of the Red Shoe”, and a recorder with strange songs and cryptic messages.
The found became a performance lecture on site and a confirmation ritual where Itonje recognized ADAs presence. The audience was given different tasks to conduct the ceremony. The material also turned in to a very long film witch never made sense.
