Elmgreen & Dragset are acclaimed for redefining how art is presented and experienced. Join this contemporary artist duo as they discuss their practice and works, including Queer Bar/Powerless Structures, Fig. 21, featured in the exhibition Minimalism: Space. Light. Object.
About the Artists
Based in Berlin, Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset have worked together as an artist duo since 1995. Drawing from disciplines ranging from institutional critique and social politics to performance and architecture, their sculptures and installations reconfigure the familiar with characteristic wit and subversive humour, while considering how we interact with spatial contexts and prompting a re-thinking of the status quo. Elmgreen & Dragset have been commissioned to create several sculptures internationally in public spaces and have staged numerous institutional exhibitions around the world.
