Elmgreen & Dragset

Based in London and Berlin, Michael Elmgreen (b. 1961, Denmark) and Ingar Dragset (b. 1969, Norway) have worked as a collaborative duo since the mid-1990s. Throughout their career, Elmgreen & Dragset have redefined the way in which art is presented and experienced. Drawing from disciplines as divergent as institutional critique, social politics, performance, and architecture, in their sculptures and installations the artists reconfigure the familiar with characteristic wit and subversive humor. From the transformation of New York City’s Bohen Foundation into a 13th Street Subway Station in 2004, to the siting of a Prada boutique in a Texan desert in 2005, and the insertion of institutional spaces within the architecture of a public gallery, as in the Serpentine Gallery’s critically acclaimed The Welfare Show in 2006, their work raises issues around social models and social spaces, and prompts a rethinking of the status quo. Their piece in the show, Hong Kong Diaries, is a new production based on a work previously shown in Paris in 2003 and in the Istanbul Biennale in 2013.
