Elmgreen & Dragset - Biography

Contact information

Description

'Biography' is the first major exhibition in Oslo by Elmgreen & Dragset. The exhibition presents a wide selection of works from the artist duo's complex universe, including sculpture, performance and interactive installations. Works from the late 1990s onwards will be shown together with recent projects, and all together they creates 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' will examine 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. Already in the museum’s cloakroom, the surprising elements that have been added to the existing architectural features will prepare the visitor for an exhibition that is also an immersive theatrical/filmic experience.

Michael Elmgreen (Denmark) and Ingar Dragset (Norway) have been working together since 1995. They have become known through their solo exhibitions and projects at prestigious institutions and museums worldwide, including the Serpentine Gallery and Tate Modern in London, the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, ZKM, Karlsruhe, and Kunsthalle Zurich.

Curators : Gunnar B. Kvaran and Kjersti Solbakken.
