'Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg: The Skin is a Thin Container' at macLYON, Lyon, France
23 February 2023
From 24 February 2023, macLYON presents is the first solo exhibition in France by artist duo Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg.
Featuring new and past video and sculptural works, 'The Skin is a Thin Container' takes form as a gigantic 'soup', a metaphor for the human body, where several foods serve as allegories of body parts. Amongst the ingredients, Djurberg & Berg chose to highlight root vegetables. Growing and developing underground, it is only when we dig them up that we become aware of what they are, in the same way our bodies are imbued with emotions, most of them invisible, at times unconscious, or even partly buried.
The animated films and sculptural installations by Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg address the human condition, particularly the desires, impulses, and vices buried in our subconscious, and at the origin of our fantasies and obsessions. This exhibition sees the two artists explore, in an intuitive way, the difficulty we have in experiencing our emotions and the way in which our bodies express themselves.
The exhibition runs from 24 February – 9 July 2023.
