Helene Berg
Dupont Underground is proud to exhibit the work of Helene Berg — one of Sweden’s most accomplished visual, motion graphic, animation and performance artists. In addition to her career in the fine arts Ms. Berg has also directed animated Television series, and music videos. She is known for her productions of performance art and live visuals for concerts, dance and theatre performances. The style of berg’s work ranges from realistic productions, such as the stop motion film “Qoi-the polar bear” to more lyrical and abstract works like “Bohemia.” This is Berg’s first exhibit in the United States.

Ms Berg’s fascination for animation started as a child. In later years during her studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm, she was introduced to digital software which opened up new possibilities for her work. Ms. Berg often combines analog and digital techniques in her work as you will see in this exhibition. Her motion graphic work often has a strong connection to music. In addition to Berg’s superior audio visual skills, she is also a trained live performer. Berg’s training as a mime actor and puppeteer facilitated her acute awareness for the essence of timing and the utilization of movements to engage and communicate emotions during performances.
Eternal Summer - (Set time: 6:00 PM)

When Isak meets Em during a night in Stockholm everything change. Suddenly nothing else matter. Isak wants Em. Em wants more.

Armed with an acoustic guitar, a cajon, and a looper/sampler pedal, Andrew makes his craft as best he knows how to. He calls himself a 'soundscape engineer.
