"NATHA­LIE DJUR­BERG & HANS BERG. A JOUR­NEY THROUGH MUD AND CONFU­SION WITH SMALL GLIM­P­SES OF AIR" 28 February to 26 May 2019 at the SCHIRN

 

There is an element of seduc­tion when encoun­tering films by Nathalie Djurberg (*1978) and Hans Berg (*1978)—striking and imme­diate, they attract the viewer into colorful, sugges­tive worlds accom­pa­nied by hypnotic music. Their play­fully told, dismal fables full of black humor examine the great ques­tions of humankind.

Djurberg and Berg let their figures step into action in isolated places, in the forest, in a cave, a chamber, or on a stage, where they are driven by an uncon­scious inner longing or expe­ri­ence painful, some­times even comical situ­a­tions. The artists take visi­tors to the exhi­bi­tion on a journey into the inte­rior of humankind—with films that resemble absurd dreams and suppressed memo­ries and explore the limits of what is humanly toler­able in a dense atmos­phere.

The exhi­bi­tion is produced by Moderna Museet in collab­o­ra­tion with MART, Rovereto, and Schirn Kunsthalle Frank­furt.
