The first appraisal of the sculptural oeuvre of Elmgreen and Dragset, famed for their surreal Prada boutique in Texas
Scandinavian artist duo Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset (born 1961 and 1969) consistently devise new possibilities in the way art is presented and perceived through their subversive and multivalent art, as seen in works such as their well-known installation Prada Marfa (2005), a permanently closed Prada boutique in the middle of the desert in Texas, or Powerless Structures, Fig. 101, a sculpture of a boy on a rocking horse created for London's 2012 Fourth Plinth Commission in Trafalgar Square.
Accompanying a fall 2019 exhibition at Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Elmgreen & Dragset: Sculptures—the first-ever dedicated study of the duo's sculptures—covers their production in this field from the mid-1990s through the present day. Organized according to the aesthetics and conceptual working methods that the artists have employed throughout their career, it includes extensive photographic documentation of 112 of their works and five essays approaching their practice from both art-historical and thematic perspectives.
