Drama Queens

3 July 2007

Performance without actors. Project by Elmgreen & Dragset. Text by Tim Etchells. June 2007.

Seven 20th Century superstar sculptures find themselves displaced and out of
their usual context on a stage. The performance involves motorised and
remote control replicas of sculptures by Giacometti, Helpworth, Arp, Koons,
Ruckeriem, LeWitt and Warhol. The work unfolds through a series of clashes
and crossovers between the various isms and aesthetics which the sculptures
represent — from formal and minimal to pop and postmodern.

London performance at The Old Vic, 12 October 2008.
