Elmgreen & Dragset : biography by Michael Elmgreen( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Biography' is the first major exhibition in Oslo by Elmgreen & Dragset. The show presents a wide selection of works from the artist duo's complex universe, including performance, sculpture and interactive installations. Works from the late 1990s onwards are shown together with recent projects, and all together create a unique insight into the artists' oeuvre. Elmgreen & Dragset consider an exhibition to be a work of art in itself, with all its narrative, choreographic and social possibilities and 'Biography' examines the very conditions of exhibiting. Works that initially arrived from very different contexts are here brought together and the new constellations of works generate altered readings and additional layers of meaning. When walking through the museum, one will experience environments which occur very realistic, just in order to end up in almost surreal and other worldly scenarios elsewhere in the exhibition. A durational live act is juxtaposed with a series of wall pieces, and existing sculptures find their place in the context of new site specific environments

Elmgreen & Dragset : trilogy by Elmgreen & Dragset( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based in London and Berlin, Michael Elmgreen (b. 1961, Denmark) and Ingar Dragset (b. 1969, Norway) have worked as a collaborative team since the mid-1990s. In 2006, their 'Welfare show' at the Serpentine Gallery invited viewers to consider societal power structures, including economic disparity, health care, immigration, travel, prostitution, the police state and the role art plays in society. The duo were awarded Special Mention at the 2009 Venice Biennale for 'The collectors', their highly elaborate and widely acclaimed exhibition for the Danish and Nordic Pavilions, while their 2011 work 'Celebrity: the one and the many' addresses rumour-mongering, life in the public eye, the machinations of the media and its formation of myths. This book thoroughly documents these projects, showing how the artists' sculptures and installations reconfigure the familiar with characteristic wit and subversive humour
A space called public = Hoffentlich öffentlich by Ingar Dragset( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What defines a city's identity in the year 2013? Public space has served as a meeting place and a stage for action, from discussions and deals to protests, since ancient times.0Though then as now, such activities continue to take place in the analogue world, increasingly these interactions have moved to the digital world of the internet. As a consequence, the meaning, use and dynamic of public space is changing.0With 'A space called public', Elmgreen & Dragset present an art project in a public space in Munich, showing works by international artists asked to explore the meaning of public space using a fresh approach.0An extensive catalogue has been published to complement the project and illuminate the questions it raises by adding theoretical perspectives. This publication is conceived as a documentation of the exhibition and a working guide to the current discussion of art and the public.0Exhibition: several locations in Munich, Germany (29.01.-30.09.2013)

Elmgreen & Dragset : this is the first day of my life by Michael Elmgreen( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since their first project together in 1995, Michael Elmgreen (*1961) and Ingar Dragset (*1969) have created a much-respected oeuvre, as well as a world entirely of their own. Their amazing architectural sculptures and installations have brought them international renown--for example, there is the multifaceted series Powerless Structures, which now includes over one hundred pieces; the duo's witty permanent installation Prada Marfa in the middle of the Texas desert; and their socio-critical traveling exhibition The Welfare Show. This Is the First Day of My Life introduces the most important works by this artistic duo, as well as previously unpublished creations. Three fictional texts help to expand the Elmgreen/Dragset universe into new, related fields. Exhibition schedule: Malmö Konsthall March-May 6, 2007 · Skulptur Projekte Münster 2007, June 17-September 30, 2007 · Memorial Site for the Persecuted Homosexual Victims of National Socialism, Berlin, to be completed in Fall 2007

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
