Elmgreen & Dragset @ Whitechapel Gallery

Guests participated in a private group guided tour to see ‘This is How we Bite our Tongue’, which was the work of Scandinavian artist duo Michael Elmgreen (Danish) and Ingar Dragset (Norwegian) - well known for their ‘Rocking Horse’ fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square. In their uncanny, beguiling installations, institutional spaces are wittily transformed into metaphors for personal desires and collective identities. The exhibition combines a survey of their emotional figurative sculptures with a large-scale installation that meditates on the fate of civic space.
