About the event

Enter the world of Norman Swann, elderly architect and proprietor of an elaborate apartment in South Kensington. As Norman struggles to deal with the burden of his cultural heritage, the arrival of his unscrupulous former student, now a famous architect to the stars, threatens to destabilise his fragile existence.

This ambitious site-specific installation functions as a stage set for an unrealised drama, presenting a highly-choreographed environment of a grand domestic setting. Scandinavian artist duo Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset transform the V&A’s former Textiles galleries to redefine the way in which art is presented and experienced. Explore the relationship between sculpture, architecture and design as objects from the Museum’s collection are presented alongside artworks, furniture and every day items to create unexpected encounters.
