Swedish duo Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg animate fantastical forays of shame and desire.

Our debut collaboration is a series of 25 toned resin sculptures — each finished with a unique hairpiece handmade by the artists.

The Advantage touches on recurring themes from Djurberg and Berg’s practice: metamorphosis, guilt and deceit. Treacherous yet disarmingly hopeful, the crocodile pursues an upper hand, using a wig as its disguise. In the artists’ words, the series “takes something considered ugly and adds something more, which turns out not beautiful either, and then finds the beauty (and sweetness) in the innocence of that act.”

The work is drawn from a series of animations and sculptures titled Only for the wicked, scheduled to premier next year in Lyon, France.

Collaborators since 2004, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg probe the universal tenets of humanity with idiosyncratic animations and installations.

“It always starts with an unanswered question. It’s an exploration every time — trying to find what you’re really looking for which can never really be touched.”
