Grinde was chosen with his exhibition proposal A borrowed horse one must soon dismount, with a motif based on a plaster sculpture by Gustav Vigeland. His work is of the dystopian and civilization-critical kind, but in its ambiguity also contains humorous touches.
- The motif is based on a plaster sculpture by Vigeland. Around the horse, on the floor, lie several horses [...]. They lie crippled on the floor. As if they have stopped in the middle of a fall. They breathe in the same way, but at an individual pace. Everything a little out of sync. The room that is never quite the same. The panels on the pedestal are decorated with motifs taken from Vigeland's reliefs. They depict a young horse kicking away small children. A battle that should have been easy for a young horse, but which the one in this semi-fictional narrative lost, Grinde says in his project description.
