“DO NOT DISTURB” | 21st March | Oslo

Untitled-9A group exhibition featuring artists invited by
Elmgreen & Dragset:

Cosima von Bonin, Cerith Wyn Evans, Tom of Finland, Simon Fujiwara, Julian Göthe, Henrik Olai Kaarstein, Henrik Olesen, Raymond Pettibon, Seth Pick, Ingegerd Råman, Prem Sahib, Dirk Stewen, Sissel Tolaas, Elmar Vestner and others.

The works included in DO NOT DISTURB focus on the nocturnal, sleep, dreams, passion, sexual fantasies, and the last, long night that awaits us all. The gallery space is transformed into a gothic-style bedroom with dark red walls and an imposing black lacquered bed by Elmgreen & Dragset in the centre of the room. The bed, titled Omnes Una Manet Nox, which translates to One Night Awaits Us All, shows a sinister gold plated vulture perched on top of one of its bedposts. Each work in this group exhibition adds in different ways to the condensed domestic ambience of the space, as if they were all elements in a life sized, perverted doll house where “do not disturb” makes literal sense.
