Neuer Kunstverein Wien is pleased to present ‘Worship’ (2016), a new video work produced by Nathalie Djurberg (b. 1978) in collaboration with artist Hans Berg (b. 1978).

In the hands of Swedish artist Nathalie Djurberg, animation becomes a medium for transgressive and nightmarish allegories of desire and displeasure. Since 2001, Nathalie Djurberg has honed a distinctive style of filmmaking, using the pliability of clay to dramatise our most primal urges — jealousy, revenge, greed, submission, and gluttony.

In her new video work ‘Worship’ (2016), Nathalie takes her own personal fantasies as a starting point and investigates lust and desire. In her stop motion animation film, sexuality is ever-present, victims and perpetrators switch roles, characters exploit and are exploited. Set to music and sound effects by her collaborator, Hans Berg, Djurberg’s video work plumbs the dark recesses of the mind, drawing sometimes disturbing connections between human psychology and animal behavior. Their interdisciplinary collaborations have blurred the cinematic, the sculptural, and the performative in immersive environments that pair moving images and musical compositions with related set pieces.
