Biography was the first major exhibition in Oslo by Elmgreen & Dragset. The exhibition presented a wide selection of works from the artist duo’s complex universe, including sculpture, performance and interactive installations. Works from the late 1990s onwards were shown together with recent projects, and all together they created a unique insight into the artists’ oeuvre. Elmgreen & Dragset consider an exhibition to be a work of art in itself, with all its narrative, choreographic and social possibilities and Biography examined the very conditions of exhibiting.
The exhibition at the Astrup Fearnley Museet was the first in a three-part exhibition series by Elmgreen & Dragset entitled Biography. It was followed by exhibitions at the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen and at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
