The Advantage

Series of 24

Swedish duo Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg animate fantastical forays of shame and desire. The Advantage, a series of 25 toned resin sculptures with unique, handmade hair pieces, touches on recurring themes from their practice: metamorphosis, guilt and deceit.

Treacherous and 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.”
