Often when Forfang exhibits she use the whole room, including the floor, the roof and the walls. Sometimes she even makes music to get the atmosphere the way she wants.
The first installation she made was in Antwerp in 1994. Forfang was member of the art group October Octopus at that time. To the exhibition she made a construction specially made for showing paintings. The floor were filled with water and stones, and the audience had to enter it to be able to see the paintings.
Another installation was at Pictura Art museum where she put eggshells on the floor. The public had to walk on them to be able to see the paintings. The eggshells formed a new mosaic of a foetus when they where crushed into smaller and smaller pieces.
In Ask, Sweden, she collected 600 dolls that she used to make a serie of photos and a doll installation.
The most provocative installations Forfang made was called "Power- only for women" where men had to wait outside the installation. She made one in Stavanger at galleri Sult in 2003 and one at Arteriet in Kristiansund in 2020.
