Born in West Telemark, Norway, Ingrid Torvund is a film-maker and artist based in Oslo, where she graduated from the Oslo National Academy of Art in 2012.
She is currently working on her third short film, “I Found You Under Earth Under Blood” a film trilogy that began with «Magic Blood Machine» (2012) and continued with «When I Go Out In Bleed Magic» (2015).
In these works Torvund creates a personal mythology, rooted in the natural landscapes of Telemark and the mixture of Christian and pre-Christian mysticism that can be traced in magic and folklore, but assimilating these influences in a completely unique, idiosyncratic vision.
The trilogy is screening at the exhibition at Kunsthall Oslo 15.March – 28.April
together with props and costumes from the films.
