Subterranean – can be enigmatic, frightening, alluring, mysterious and full of resources that humans need.

 It is central to numerous religious perceptions of Death and Life, and to literature and art the underworld has provided an abundance of material for the invention of myths, stories and images. The exhibition brings forth these perceptions and uncharted worlds are explored through the works of contemporary and historic works of artists.

Hundreds of works by nearly sixty artists, spanning from painting and sculpture to video, installations and performance, take us to the caves and cavities of geology, the Death realms of mythology, the rabbit holes of literature and not the least the exploitation of the earth under the feet.
