"La Biennale di Venezia. 53. esposizione internazionale d'arte. Partecipazioni nazionali."
"'The Collectors' marks a first time collaboration between the Danish Pavilion and the Nordic Pavilion and represents the first joint venture between two national Pavilions in the context of la Biennale di Venezia. -- "The Collectors" is curated and staged by the artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset, who have been appointed by the Danish Arts Council and the Nordic Committee. The exhibition was initiated with the intention of dismantling the national representation model, designating instead a transnational "neighborhood" within the Giardini area. -- The Danish Arts Council is represented by the Danish Arts Council's Committee for International Visual Art, which acts as commissioner for the Danish Pavilion. Office for Contemporary Art Norway (OCA) serves as Commissioner for the Nordic Pavilion on behalf of the Nordic Committee, the members of which are OCA for Norway, Modern Museet for Sweden and FRAME Finnish Fund for Art Exchange for Finland."--The Collectors brochure.

Abstract:

"For the 53rd International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, the Danish and Nordic Pavilions will host "The Collectors", a single exhibition curated and staged by Elmgreen & Dragset. With contributions from twenty-four international artists and artist groups, Elmgreen & Dragset will transform the Danish and Nordic Pavilions into domestic environments where the audience is invited as guests. Dining rooms, bedrooms, furniture, fireplaces, a stained glass skylight and artworks nestled within households, will reveal the uncanny stories of fictional inhabitants, with their obsessive characters and diverse lifestyles. -- The public will be guided on a tour by a real estate agent through a 'For Sale' Danish Pavilion, and will be told the story of the family dramas that used to haunt this house. The neighboring Nordic Pavilion has been turned into a flamboyant bachelor's pad. Here the audience will experience not only the collection of contemporary artworks and design from the mysterious Mr. B., but also his collection of ex-lovers' used swimwear. As the title "The Collectors" indicates, the exhibition will approach the topic of collecting, and the psychology behind the practice of expressing oneself through physical objects."--The Collectors press kit.
