Nathalie Djurberg

Nathalie Djurberg was born 1978 in Lysekil, Sweden, and received her master’s degree from Malmö Art Academy. Today Djurberg and her partner, Hans Berg, live and work in Berlin, Germany. Her work was featured in the 2009 Biennale di Venezia and she has had exhibitions at Tate Modern, London, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, and Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin. In 2010 and 2011, her work will be the focus of exhibitions at Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, Camden Arts Centre, London, and Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. She was awarded the Carnegie Art Award, Scholarship for a Young Artist in 2008 and the Silver Lion for a Promising Young Artist at the Biennale di Venezia in 2009.

Using plasticine to design her landscapes, buildings and figures, Nathalie Djurberg creates sculptural installations and stop-motion films. The films follow a narrative, which always starts out from an idyllic innocence turning into dark destruction. Djurberg investigates human nature in her “fairy tales” about madness, fear, obsession, lust and violence. All her filmworks are accompanied by music composed by Hans Berg.

For PAC, Djurberg develops a fresh statement on her own work by a very individual combination of three different movies.
