For her first solo exhibition in an American museum, Swedish-born, Berlin-based artist Nathalie Djurberg presents two new videos and an installation with related sculptures created during her Hammer residency. Her clay animation videos (with wildly inventive soundtracks composed by her collaborator Hans Berg) appear sweet and idyllic at first glance, but the action generally takes dark, twisted, and disturbing turns as her characters act out wild revenge fantasies and other violent scenarios. Djurberg was included in a 2006 Hammer Project, Animations. She has had solo exhibitions at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, and the Prada Foundation, Milan, and was included in the 4th berlin biennale.
