Elmgreen & Dragset: This Is How We Bite Our Tongue

at Whitechapel Gallery

Artist duo Michael Elmgreen from Denmark and Ingar Dragset from Norway are coming to Whitechapel Gallery this autumn to show new exciting work in the exhibition This Is How We Bite Our Tongue.


Elmgreen & Dragset produce beguiling spatial scenarios that explore social and sexual politics and unveil the power structures embedded in the everyday designs that surround us. In their uncanny installations, institutional spaces are transformed into metaphors for individual desires and collective identities with subversive wit and tongue-in-cheek melancholy. This exhibition juxtaposes a survey of their emotional figurative sculptures with an extraordinary new large-scale installation that meditates on the fate of civic space.
