Willow Smith is taking her art to claustrophobic levels, as she prepares to lock herself in a box for 24 hours as part of a performance art show at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Geffen Contemporary in Los Angeles.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Smith along with her collaborator Tyler Cole will transition through eight stages of anxiety: paranoia, rage, sadness, numbness, euphoria, strong interest, compassion, and acceptance. The pair will spend three hours in each emotion and will not speak to one another nor any spectators. Breaks will only be permitted only to eat, sleep, and use the bathroom, which will be limited to two minutes apiece. The concept came about while Smith and Cole were recording their joint album, a mix of alternative rock and punk titled The Anxiety, which will be released immediately following this week’s exhibit.

“We might grunt or scream,  it’s going to be very primal,” Smith revealed. 
A glass wall will separate visitors from the duo. The other three sides of the box will be composed of canvas, on which Smith and Cole will paint and write affirmations during their time in confinement. 

“We were like, ‘Wouldn’t it be so interesting if we could personify this experience? Starting from being scared and feeling alone and moving to a place of acceptance and joy? We understand this is a very sensitive subject. And we don’t want to be like, ‘Our experience is the experience.’ This is just us expressing our personal experience with this.” Smith said.

The art exhibit will take place at MOCA’s Geffen Contemporary beginning Wednesday at 9 p.m. through Thursday at 9 p.m.
