'The Parade: Nathalie Djurberg with Music by Hans Berg' is Djurberg's most ambitious multimedia installation to date. Originally organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Djurberg will adapt this installation for the New Museum's !Studio 231' space. Set to music and sound effects by her collaborator, Hans Berg, Djurberg's videos plumb the dark recesses of the mind, drawing sometimes disturbing connections between human psychology and animal behavior. For her new work, 'The Parade' (2011), Djurberg has created five captivating animations and an unnerving menagerie of more than eighty freestanding bird sculptures. Drawing on avian physiology, rituals of mating and territorial display, and the social phenomenon of flocking, she has assembled a fantastical procession of species all fashioned from modest materials such as clay, wire, and painted canvas.
