Elmgreen & Dragset: The Outsiders Installation and preventive conservation of a contemporary artwork

By Saara Peisa

An old Mercedes is standing in the back of a car park. You could just pass by, but something draws your attention; perhaps it is the magazine on the dashboard or something inside packed in bubble wrap. You look in and are startled – some guys are sleeping in there! Are they real? I can’t believe it, they look so real! After the initial shock, you start to look for the story. Why are they sleeping in a car? Where are they going?
