This is the first duo exhibition of the Swedish art group Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg in China. The curator Sun Qidong prepares for viewers a pre-conscious roam based on six groups (pieces) of works created since 2013. Mixing animation, sculpture and sound, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg create psychologically charged scenarios dealing with human and animalistic desires. Since 2001, Djurberg has developed a distinctive style of filmmaking, using clay animation to dramatize the basest of natural instincts from jealousy, revenge and greed, to submission and lust. Her partner, the musician and composer Hans Berg, conjures up the atmospheric sound effects and scores the hypnotic music for Djurberg’s animations and installations. In 2004 they began working closely together as a duo .They have exhibited widely together in group shows, including the 53rd Venice Biennale in2009, while recent solo shows include the ‘Flickers of Day and Night’ at ARoSAarhus Kunst museum, Aarhus and Denmark as well as “Parade” held in Neue Galerie New York and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
