Nathalie Djurberg is best known for her stop-motion films, which she has been creating since 2003 with dolls made of Plasticine, fabric and synthetic hair. The colorful, childlike figures stand in a strong contrast to the films’ brutal content that focuses on sadism, sexuality and abuse. The artist is the director, scriptwriter and set designer of her films. The soundtracks are composed by her partner, Hans Berg.
Ingvild Goetz became interested in the artist’s work early on. In addition to her films, the collection now includes the installation The Experiment, for which Djurberg was awarded the Silver Lion at the Biennale in Venice in 2009. The work presents a surreal garden containing wondrous artificial plants, in conjunction with three videos. Presented in Base 103, the multi-media installation is accompanied by a film program and runs parallel to Cindy Sherman’s solo exhibition.
