Nathalie Djurberg
May 26 – October 11, 2008 | Goetz Collection BASE103

„It’s a stop motion technique, meaning you have an object, you take a picture of it and then you move it a tiny bit, take another picture, etc… Then you transfer it to your computer and violà you have a film. It is very important to me that the idea comes first and the technique drags behind.”
Nathalie Djurberg

When it comes to creating her claymation animated films, Nathalie Djurberg is a one-woman film crew: director and camerawoman, technical engineer, costume designer, figure creator and set designer all in one. Each and every image, shaped from papier mache and plasticine is all her own work, filmed in non-stop motion with a mini-DVD camera, frame by frame. Often, the traces of production, such as the threads supporting the puppets, or her own hands, are clearly visible, lending the films an almost naïve look that sets them apart from the glib perfection of major Disney studio productions. This is also evident in the often disturbing and provocative themes she addresses: eroticism, sexuality, violence, love, power and powerlessness, masochism and sadism, through to vulnerability, nostalgia and shelter. Hungry Hungry Hippoes, 2007, shows three semi-naked female figures dressed in highly eroticised body-clinging garments, whose obesity really does conjure images of hippos. They are toying with a slender, black African boy in a way that oscillates uncomfortably between attraction and abuse. Djurberg’s works play deliberately on the fantasies of the viewer. She transforms the seeming innocence of the animated film – widely associated with a young audience – into a complex, erotically charged and psychologically visceral form of the adult imagination. The viewer becomes a voyeur of outrageous fantasies that hover between fascination and disgust, between taboo and overstepping a line.

Djurberg’s partner Hans Berg compones the intense electronic soundtrack that drives and dramatizes the films.

Nathalie Djurberg (1978 in Lysekil, SE) lives and works in Berlin.
