The exhibition Flowers in the Attic by the Swedish artist duo Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg is shown in Nybruket Gallery. The exhibition juxtaposes recent film works together with The Clearing installation and invites viewers into this artist duo’s surreal world of dreamscapes and fantasy-filled re-imaginings of reality.
