Film screening: Under Earth Trilogy

This film trilogy will whisk you off on a mysterious journey, on which you will encounter the magical creatures in the forests and mountains of Telemark. Buy a cup of hot chocolate in the brasserie and make yourself comfy.

Kunsten is proud to present this fascinating work of cinematic contemporary art by the young, Norwegian artist Ingrid Torvund. One of Kunsten’s curators, Søs Bech Sharpe will introduce the work.


Ingrid Torvund’s film trilogy Under Earth is composed of three short films, each with a running time of between 20 and 27 minutes: Magic Blood Machine (2012), When I Go Out I Bleed Magic (2015) and I Found You Under Earth Under Blood (2019).


Ingrid Torvund’s three short, macabre films reflect the artist’s interest in folktales, the occult and science fiction.


She shot the films in the western part of Telemark in Norway: an area known for folk music, storytelling and ancient churches. As the artist explains, it is a place where Christian and pagan symbols coexist.


In these works, Torvund creates a personal mythology rooted in this stunning landscape, drawing on Christian and pre-Christian mysticism, magic and folklore.
