//…In her IASPIS studio Ylva Westerlund is showing videos and drawings under the heading Non Serviam. Focusing on the voice and how it sometimes escapes notions of gender and body, in one of her works Ylva Westerlund has found her point of departure in the style of singing known as ”growl”. In a filmed interview Angela Gossow, lead singer of band Arch Enemy, explains the physiological parameters of growl technique. The installation also includes an interview with Cristine Sarrimo, who is a professor in literature at Malmö University, dealing with how accusations and confessions are manifested in a post-religious legal system.
Video titles; "The technique of Growl", 2008, "Post-religious confessions", 2008, "Downward Pentagram", 2008
