Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg “The Soft Spot”

Through stop-motion video, sound, sculpture and large-scale installations, Djurberg & Berg create stories that investigate themes of sexuality, lust, submission, fear, loss, jealousy, exploitation and greed.

The artists develop narratives that are at once comical and seductive, erotic and violent and that frequently hint at the absurd. Their surreal, psychologically charged works always deal with human and animalistic desires.

Having collaborated for over a decade, the artists work completely intuitively each in their own medium, without a prewritten script, storyboard or a predetermined plot: Djurberg has developed a distinctive style of filmmaking where she produces elaborate environments and puppets out of clay, plasticene, wire and foam while the musician and composer Berg is in charge of the music. He produces the atmospheric sound and adds the hypnotic music to Djurberg’s animations. The combination of suggestive pictorial worlds, sculpture and particular sound is the Swedish duo’s trademark.
