Elmgreen & Dragset
Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset have been working together since 1995. The Scandinavian duo (Elmgreen is Danish, Dragset Norwegian) is based in Berlin, and has been crossing the lines of conceptual art, architecture and design on the biggest stages in the world. They’re probably best known for Van Gogh’s Ear, a vertical swimming pool in the shape of an earlobe, and of course, the infamous Prada Marfa, a Prada store in the middle of the Texan desert.
