Kjersti Vetterstad

A Beehive in My Heart


— presented in collaboration with Cinemateket USF

Screening: Thursday March 5th at 6pm, followed by Q&A with Kjersti Vetterstad





A Beehive in My Heart portrays Catalan beekeeper Josep Maria Garcia and his bees. The bees are under pressure due to various forms of human activity. In simple words, Garcia talks about his work as a beekeeper, and about the struggle to keep the bees alive when temperatures rises on Earth and the use of pesticides among farmers increases in scope. The film juxtaposes pictures of the beekeeper and the bees' work with images of animals and plants that live in and off the surrounding land.

A Beehive in My Heart is the second part of the planned documentary trilogy Forgotten Land. The first film in the series, The Agronaut, was first shown in connection with Vetterstad's solo exhibition Quest in Paradise at UKS in Oslo 2014/2015.

Kjersti Vetterstad (b.1977) is a visual artist with a degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bergen and from Konstfack in Stockholm. Through a diverse practice she explores themes such as place, time, and impermanence, issues relating to identity and alienation, and the boundaries that define the relationship between human and nature.

A Beehive in My Heart portretterer den catalanske birøkteren Josep Maria Garcia og biene hans. Biene er som art under press på grunn av ulike former for menneskelig aktivitet. Med enkle ord forteller Garcia om arbeidet som birøkter, og om kampen han kjemper for å holde biene i live når temperaturen på jorda stiger og bruken av plantevernmidler blant jordbrukere øker i omfang. I filmen sidestilles bildene av birøkteren og bienes arbeid med dyr og vekster som holder til i det omkringliggende landskapet de lever i og av.

A Beehive in My Heart er andre del av den planlagte dokumentarfilm-triologien Forgotten Land. Den første filmen i serien, The Agronaut, ble første gang vist i forbindelse med Vetterstads separatutstilling Quest in Paradise på UKS i Oslo 2014/ 2015.

Om regissøren: Kjersti Vetterstad (f.1977) er billedkunstner med utdannelse fra Kunstakademiet i Bergen og Konstfack i Stockholm. Gjennom en mangfoldig praksis utforsker hun temaer som sted, tid, og forgjengelighet, spørsmål knyttet til identitet og fremmedgjøring og grensene som definerer forholdet mellom menneske og natur.
