10. Elmgreen & Dragset (*1961/*1969), Temporary Art Museum/Powerless Structures Fig. 110, 2001

This Scandinavian duo is known for their provocative and monumental installations: they built a Prada boutique in the middle of the desert in 2005, “drowned” a collector in his pool at the Venice Biennale in 2009, and presented a gallery booth in the empty Grand Palais, a week before the FIAC 2016… This irreverent, ironic practice is intended to be a way to examine the world of art and its institutions. The sculpture being presented is part of their series of “powerless structures,” thus proposing a museum prototype in a beach hut.
