A World of Glass at Camden Arts Centre
Nathalie Djurberg with music by Hans Berg: A World of Glass
Camden Arts Centre
07 October 2011 – 8 January 2012
The animated films Djurberg is best known for are made with a technique referred to as ‘claymation’. Though at first the work appears to be playfully naïve, the scenarios enacted are often disturbing, uncovering taboos or difficult aspects of the human condition such as vulnerability, desire and suffering. A World of Glass consists of four new synchronised films with a soundtrack produced by Djurberg’s collaborator Hans Berg, presented amongst an immersive installation of glass-like objects. Another new installation will flood the central space with luminous colour, and a series of earlier animations will be shown in the Reading Room.
