Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg in "Berlin"

In their apartment and studio, sculptor-musician duo Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg create playful and bawdy clay-animation films and installations that riff on fables, allegories, and myths. Djurberg’s intuitive process of handcrafting clay figures, building sets, and meticulously photographing the tableaus to create each frame reveals the mix of dark and sweet impulses that motivate the work. Berg, with his roots in Berlin’s electronic-music scene, creates the hypnotic compositions that bring the animations to life.

Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg

Nathalie Djurberg was born in Lysekil, Sweden, in 1978. Hans Berg was born in Rättvik, Sweden, in 1978. Mixing sculpture, sound, and filmmaking, the duo has collaborated since 2004 to create absurd and bawdy clay-animation films and installations. Their work exposes an undercurrent of psychologically charged human and animalistic desires with the sweet veneer of a childhood fairytale.

I don’t really care about story. It’s the situation that interests me. For me, it’s not so interesting if I know everything that’s going to happen in animation. I lose interest in it because then I’ve already seen it in my head.
