Elmeen and Dragset. Prada Marfa, 2005Adobe bricks, plaster, paint, glass pane, aluminium frame, mdf, carpet, Prada shoes and bags, 760 x 470 x 480 cm.

Michael Elmgreen: 1961, Copenhagen, Denmark. Ingar Dragset: 1969, Trondheim, Norway. Live and work in Berlin, Germany and London, UK

Decidedly humorous, the work of Elmgreen & Dragset is deeply informed by the very aesthetic which they strive to subvert; complicating any clear line between complicity and revolt. Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset (based in London and Berlin) have been working together since 1995. The duo create work in a wide range of media including performance, installation, sculpture and film.

Superstars, 2015. Cast bronze, 7×28 cm.
