This week, the pair will be discussing the show at the Royal College of Art, The RCA/Outset Visual Cultures Lecture Series. The lecture will detail their plans to turn the former Textile galleries into the fully furnished apartment of a fictional architect.
The installation will see everyday ephemera nestling among the museum exhibits, aiming to create immersive environment with a loosely structured narrative.
The Copenhagen –born Michael Elmgreen and Norwegian Ingar Dragset have worked together as an artist duo since 1995, creating works that draw on design, architecture and art to create sculptures and installation pieces.
Possibly their most recognisable work to a London audience is their design for Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth, which was installed in February 2012 for its year-long tenure.
The cast-bronze sculpture of a small boy on a rocking horse aims to portray its subject as a ‘historical hero’, according to the artists, placed in the company of Trafalgar Square’s other sculptural inhabitants.
The talk takes place on 15 January at 6.30pm in the Royal College of Art, Dyson Building, 1 Hester Road, Battersea, London, SW11. Free, no booking required.
