Produced in conjunction with the exhibition held in Venice, at the Danish and Nordic Pavilions, for the 53rd Venice Biennale, June 7-Nov. 22, 2009.
"La Biennale di Venezia. 53. esposizione internazionale d'arte. Partecipazioni nazionali."
"For the first time in the history of the Venice Biennale, two national pavilions will merge to present one single exhibition. The Danish Art Council's Committee for International Visual Arts and the Nordic Committee are honoured to announce that the artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset will curate both the Danish and the Nordic Pavilions at the Giardini, with a show titled "The Collectors" stretching across the two neighbouring venues. Together with a selection of invited international artists, Elmgreen & Dragset will transform the existing architecture of the two pavilions into domestic settings, and invite the audience to be guests in a homely ambience. Here, dining rooms and bedrooms, furniture, fireplaces, a stained glass skylight and the artworks nestled within the households will reveal the uncanny stories of various fictional inhabitants, their obsessive characters and their 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 Ingmar Bergman-style family dramas that used to haunt this house. A long swimming pool will lead the visitors to the neighbouring Nordic Pavilion - a flamboyant bachelor's pad. Inside they will encounter the domestic remnants of the mysterious Mister B, and be met by a group of young male hustlers sipping vodka tonics in an environment that could be a case study house motif taken from a David Hockney painting."--The Collectors press kit.
