FONDAZIONE PRADA | “A Moon Wrapped in Brown Paper”

The exhibition "A Moon Wrapped in Brown Paper" by Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg was inaugurated on Wednesday 10 November in Prada Rong Zhai, Shanghai.

Prada presents“A Moon Wrappedin Brown Paper”, an exhibition by Nathalie Djurbergand HansBerg, with the support of Fondazione Prada. Curated by Yang Beichen, the project will be on view from 11 November  2021 to 9 January 2022 at Prada Rong Zhai, a 1918 historic residence in Shanghai restored by Prada and reopened in October2017

The project, presented by Prada with the support of Fondazione Prada and curated by Yang Beichen, will be open to the public from 11 November to 9 January 2022. “A Moon Wrapped in Brown Paper” – whose title is a tribute to the poem Valentine by English writer Carol Ann Duffy – brings together a selection of sculptures and videos made between 2000 and 2019.

An organic carpet connecting the ground floor rooms of Prada Rong Zhai and a layered labyrinth, specially created by Djurberg and Berg, lead visitors into a dreamlike universe.

The exhibition is conceived as a fluid landscape in which each work is a narrative microcosm populated by fairy-tale characters, animals, post-humans and strange creatures.

In these seductive and extravagant fantasies that penetrate into the most hidden parts of human beings, the roles of the protagonist and the antagonist, the victim and the executioner often get confused, as happens in social and cultural conventions, which change shape until they dissolve.
