From this Saturday until early May, Rotterdam's Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will be showing a vast range of films and installation pieces by 2009 Silver Lion awardee Nathalie Djurberg (music by Hans Berg) infamous for her claymation shorts ranging from gore to ultraviolence in a show entitled Snakes Knows It’s Yoga.

From the press release:

"The ‘Snakes Knows it’s Yoga’ installation is composed of 42 sculptures set on wooden bases in Plexiglas display cases, which are illuminated by coloured fluorescent tubes. These displays are flanked by projected animations and the air is filled with experimental music by Hans Berg. Alongside their most recent work they are screening ten films from the period 2004 to the present."
