Elmgreen & Dragset Contemporary Artist Series By Linda Yablonsky, Martin Herbert, Connie Butler and Jason Schmidt | PHAIDON
Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset have worked as a collaborative duo since the mid-1990s. Drawing from disciplines as divergent as institutional critique, social politics, performance, design, and architecture, Elmgreen & Dragset’s ‘Powerless Structures’ reconfigure the familiar with characteristic and subversive wit. This book includes all of their most significant projects, from the transformation of New York’s Bohen Foundation into a subway station in 2004, to the siting of a fake Prada boutique in the Texan desert in 2005, and the installation of the statue of a child on a rocking horse on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square in 2012.
