Djurberg & Berg on view at Kunstmuseum Ravensburg
7 November 2019A selection of stop-motion animated films by Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg are currently on view in the exhibition ‘Mondjäger: Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg in Dialogue with Asger Jorn’ at Kunstmuseum Ravensburg, Germany. The exhibition presents a comparison between the cinematic works of the Swedish artist duo and the painting and sculpture of Danish avant-garde artist Asger Jorn. The colourful image worlds of these Scandinavian artists take the viewer on a journey of metamorphoses and surprises, through hybrid creatures that possess both animal and human qualities. Their playful, open-ended processes result in transformations and shifts in meaning that interlink humour with unease.
The exhibition focuses on Jorn's paintings from the 1950s and 1960s, and films by Djurberg & Berg created between 2008 and 2018, including One Need Not be a House, The Brain Has Corridors (2018), and Dark Side of the Moon (2017).
'Mondjäger' is on view until 16 February 2020. Find more information here.
