Describing the work of the rising Berlin-based Swedish artist Nathalie Djurberg, Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli write in their introduction to this substantial new volume, "Her videos are characterized by small, animated clay figures that she uses to create surreal atmospheres and often grotesque stories. The rudimentary but ingenious staging of these narrations is created by the artist herself. Sexual reminiscing, references to the macabre, violent and subtle pleasures of cruelty and the vaguely depraved give rise to an ambiguous sense of anxiety and unease." Featuring in-depth documentation of Djurberg's work, an essay by Germano Celant, an interview with the artists and a DVD of "The Prostitute," which was created expressly for this publication, this volume is the most substantial study yet of Djurberg's work.
Nathalie Djurberg was born in Lysekil, Sweden, in 1978 and she currently lives and works in Berlin. Her work was the subject of a recent one-person show at Vienna's esteemed Kunsthalle Wien.
Rem Koolhaas is principal of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, Rotterdam, and the author of Delirious New York and S,M,L,XL. He is the recipient of the 2000 Pritzker Prize.
