The Easel

Elmgreen & Dragset: This Is How We Bite Our Tongue. Whitechapel Gallery, London

These Scandinavian artists have a knack for the astonishing – they once installed a replica Prada store out in the Texas desert. Now it’s a derelict community swimming pool inside a London gallery. This work has the “patina of fiction” and tells a story, with “a wink and a nod”, about the decline in civic facilities. “Gentrification makes everything so smooth and nice but it also excludes people.”
