The installations of Elmgreen & Dragset are a special brand of humorous – they are absurd. The art duo blend installation art, design, and even performance to turn a skeptical eye toward the familiar. The duo often begin with familiar objects and situations of habit. A slight variation seems to make the situation absurd, the behavior required silly. For example, a series of crates presumably contain art either resting in precarious positions or are already ruined. A botched art delivery becomes a commentary on the value of art.
