Elmgreen & Dragset: The One & The Many

00:06:55 178 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
In this video, Elmgreen & Dragset talk about their installation and explain how The One & The Many relates to the rest of their oeuvre.

Video for the exhibition The One & The Many, Submarine Wharf Rotterdam, May 28 till September 25, 2011.

The Submarine Wharf is located in Rotterdam's port area and is a barren spot. The warehouse may be covered, but it feels like it's outside, is the opinion of Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset. That is why the Scandinavian artist duo has built a complete residential block, including a square with trees and street furniture. The staging of this reality is completed by the presence of several residents and the exhibition visitor as an accidental passerby. Who is the loner and where are the masses?
