Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset's work radically recontextualizes quotidian objects, altering conventional methods of representation and making space for new modes of perception. Often playful and subversive, the duo’s work examines complex questions and themes relating to identity, sexuality, and mortality. Elmgreen & Dragset’s On Target subverts traditional notions of success and failure, right and wrong, and violence and beauty. The work is comprised of a stainless-steel arrow embedded in the center of a circular plate affixed to a wall. The red and blue circles reflect the composition of a target, but instead of featuring concentric circles, the work is skewed to the right. In this way, the sculpture presents two potential realities, bringing into question the terms in which we perceive the world around us. Imbued with tension and ambiguity, the work can be interpreted as a freeze-frame of an archer’s practice. Subtly referencing Jasper Johns, who explored imagery of targets, Elmgreen & Dragset investigate new possibilities of the form, reimagining its meanings and associations.
