Snakes knows it’s yoga
Rotterdam, The Netherlands
March 5-May 1, 2011
The Swedish artist Nathalie Djurberg (1978) is known above all for her animated films, which seem sweet and innocuous only at a first glance. In her art, Djurberg treats themes such as obsession, power, pleasure, desire, and violence. This ‘Snakes Knows it’s Yoga’ exhibition is the largest ever overview of their work.
Djurberg and Berg have created an installation for the 1,500m2 of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s spacious Bodon Gallery. The ‘Snakes Knows it’s Yoga’ installation is a project composed of sculptures and projections of animated films, the air filled with experimental music by Hans Berg. The presentation includes ten earlier works from the period 2005-2010.
A video portrait of Djurberg and Berg that explores their collaboration and working methods can be seen as part of the exhibition and on ArtTube.
