Peter Stackpole, May 1951
"The sensation of never feeling good enough or pretty enough will always be there. It’s a constant dialogue, and you just learn to be more powerful than that other voice. When you hear it come up, you shut it down."Shirley Manson

The World is our Stage, Berlin, Germany. Self Portrait by Simon Lohmeyer
In this series of photographic works Michael Elmgreen (b. Copenhagen, Denmark 1961) and Ingar Dragset (b. Trondheim, Norway 1969) have invited Thorvaldsen to be a guest star on the contemporary art scene. Elmgreen & Dragset have dressed up Thorvaldsen’s sculptures in various items of clothing. They use the new items of clothing to draw forth the erotic element of the marbles of the old master: staging erotic desire by emphasizing the latent possibility of undressing.
Prada Marfais a site-specific, permanent land art project by artists Elmgreen & Dragset constructed in 2005. Modeled after a Prada boutique, the inaccessible interior of the structure includes luxury goods from Prada’s fall collection from that year. The door does not open, ensuring that the sculpture will never function as a place of commerce. Art Production Fund and Ballroom Marfa co-produced the project. Valentine, Texas.
