The Danish Pavilion - 53rd Venice Biennale

The Collectors // Curated by Elmgreen + Dragset // 53rd Venice Biennale of Art

For the Venice Biennale of Art, Elmgreen + Dragset were commissioned to jointly curate the Danish and Nordic pavilions. The Danish Pavilion, like the Nordic Pavilion, was treated with an interior intervention that transformed the space into a domestic backdrop to exhibit the artworks. The Danish Pavilion became the abandoned home of an aristocratic Danish family, where the decadent artifacts left behind comprised the collective exhibition.
