Elmgreen & Dragset


Espoo Museum of Modern Art (EMMA), Espoo, Finland
Sep 26, 2020 – Jan 17, 2021

Elmgreen & Dragset’s exhibition at EMMA will mark the renowned artist duo's 25th anniversary of their collaboration. Elmgreen & Dragset have developed an entirely new concept for EMMA, where they respond to the museum’s béton brut architecture and transform the space into a completely different environment: familiar yet surreal “like a film you can walk into”.

The exhibition, entitled 2020 and consisting of a large selection of Elmgreen & Dragset’s sculptures, both new and familiar, is staged into a fictional environment, which generates new sets of narratives and enables visitors to make their own stories and associations. Running through the presentation of works is an underlying concern for the loss of togetherness in a culture that emphasizes the individual. As an exhibition, 2020 may make you, the viewer, feel completely lost. Have we finally reached a juncture where we will have to take stock of the way we lead our lives?
