Nathalie Djurberg e Hans Berg

Meetings: Cinema and Contemporary Art

The section dedicated to the link between cinema and contemporary art will offer a close-up look on the work of Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, a Swedish duo awarded with the Leone d'Argento at the 2009 Venice Biennale. BFM37, in collaboration with The Blank, will bring the fantastic worlds of the two artists to life in the sixteenth century spaces of Porta Sant'Agostino.

Curated by Stefano Raimondi and Claudia Santeroni, the exhibition develops around a large projection and, at the same time, shows the sculptural research carried out by the artists in which the works Sunrise and Sunset emphasize the flow of time and the dynamism of an ordinary day through the use of space, playing with the historical significance of the Porta Sant'Agostino, a place of passage and transit called in time to mark the moments of the day through the opening and closing of the gate.

Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg will meet the estival audience on Saturday March 9, 3:30PM at Cinema San Marco. During the event, a selection of video works will be available, allowing visitors to learn, through the words of the protagonists, the main implications related to their work.
