About Elmgreen & Dragset

In their sculptures, installations, and performances, Elmgreen & Dragset redefine how art is presented and experienced. Their work borrows elements from social critique, performance, and architecture, as in Prada Marfa (2005), a Prada boutique sited in the Texas desert, or the one-act play Drama Queens (2007), in which remote-controlled replicas of iconic sculptures, including a Jeff Koons Rabbit, are voiced by actors including Kevin Spacey. For the 2009 Venice Biennale, they presented The Collectors, imagined living spaces of an art-collecting family and neighbor, wherein works by artists like Maurizio Cattelan and Tom of Finland were displayed alongside high-end design.

Danish and Norwegian, 1961 and 1969, Copenhagen, Denmark, based in London & Berlin
