Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset have been astonishing the art world with the unusual architectural sculptures and installations of their Powerless Structures series for a number of years. A recurring theme in these works is the "White Cube", the neutral yet ideologically charged, institutionalized container for art. At the heart of their interest is the process of building as a process of development in progress. Taking Place, their project for the Kunsthalle Zürich, focuses on just such a process. Here, they transformed the Kunsthalle into a construction site at which work by the two artists on a "permanent installation" was presented as a future exhibition situation at the Kunsthalle. Elmgreen and Dragset showed the processes of encircling the offices, tearing down and building new walls - in short, the suspended state of the reorganization of the non-public space in which art is administered and the public space in which it is presented, but before it is made available for that purpose. The artists: Michael Elmgreen (born 1961 in Copenhagen, Denmark) and Ingar Dragset (born 1969 in Trondheim, Norway). The two artists have been working together since 1995. Collaboration on Powerless structures since 1997; numerous joint and group exhibitions world- wide. The artists live and work in Berlin. Exhibition Schedule: Kunsthalle Zürich November 10, 2001 - January 20, 2002
