Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation announces this summer’s exhibition at Royal Djurgården11/02/2021
Following the success of last year’s widely-acclaimed exhibition, ‘Alice Aycock at Royal Djurgården’, we are now getting ready for this summer’s exhibition at Royal Djurgården, which will be by artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset. The main piece is a near eight-metre high site-specific sculpture, which has been acquired by the foundation and will be included in the future sculpture park in the Rosendal area.
Since the start of Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset’s collaboration in 1995, they have had a distinguished international career, and they are among the most significant and multifaceted artists of our time.
Elmgreen & Dragset often refer to everyday objects in their artwork, and they explore what happens when these objects are placed in new unlikely constellations and contexts. With a mixture of absurdist humor and social concern, the artist duo encourages the viewer to reflect and to reconsider habitual interpretations.
”We are really looking forward to presenting Elmgreen & Dragset outdoors at Royal Djurgården this summer. They have a unique ability to portray important topics in an unexpected and surprising way”, says Sara Sandström Nilsson, Executive Director at the Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation.
Elmgreen & Dragset’s exhibition will be the second arranged by the Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation. The exhibition will be unveiled on 8th June.
