Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg: A Journey Through Mud and Confusion With Small Glimpses of Air
STOCKHOLM  •  Moderna Museet  •  Ongoing

Nathalie Djurberg’s animated worlds and Hans Berg’s electronic music conjure up scenes with a surrealistic approach. This summer, Moderna Museet features the internationally renowned duo’s stop motion films and spatial installations along with an entirely new VR piece. The exhibition describes an inner journey, an attempt to make existence more comprehensible in a flow of impulses and impressions.

Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg create animated worlds out of objects, music and moving images – dreamlike realities to immerse yourself in. Their playfully-told fables blend humour with darkness, suspending any moral laws of gravity. Their intense chamber pieces enact fragments of memories repressed between innocence and shame, or feverish daydreams of role play and desire. They topple accepted truths about man’s supremacy in nature and our habitual understanding of remembrance, time and space. Embedded in these works is a burlesque social critique that – sometimes literally – undresses the men of power, given hierarchies and social norms.
