Swedish artist Nathalie Djurberg’s first solo exhibition in the UK is on now at the Camden Arts Centre and it’s a highlight of the autumn artistic calendar. Witness an intriguing contrast between glassy objects and wacky animated films, in dark rooms flooded with a tinkling soundtrack devised by composer Hans Berg.

Household items are re-cast in icy detail, and the four films feature strange interactions between animals and people. This installation draws its audiences into a fairytale world, exploring the boundaries between human and animal nature, pleasure and pain, beauty and the grotesque. Don’t miss the Reading Room which contains some fascinating books and further films.

Admission is free and utterly recommended. Make sure you read my exhibition review here.
