Elmgreen & Dragset are an artist duo that continuously works together for over 25 years. The team creates imaginary settings with tower buildings out of steel and aluminum glass. The settings imitate urban city architecture with tall skyscrapers. Many of their works are sculptural installations that are part of series. They have showings in several countries, such as Korea, Singapore, and Berlin. For this skyline carpet, we are taking inspiration from one of their installations.
Their City In The Sky exhibit from 2019 amazes us. The architectural model is created out of stainless steel, aluminum acrylic glass, and LED lights. The entire installation is large enough for people to step inside the steel frames to gaze. The artwork is an imaginary city that resembles Hong Kong and hangs upside down. They let others explore their imaginations through their beautiful metropolis.
Similarly, we also present a soft skyline carpet that translates Elmgreen & Dragset architectural installation. The striped cityscape design falls on top of a concrete background, with outlines creating city skylines. That line is drawn sideways as if it is hanging just like the art installation. The carpet design gives a modernized feel to a traditional and straightforward concept.
