about

Working together since 1995, artist duo Michael Elmgreen (b. 1961, Denmark) and Ingar Dragset (b. 1969, Norway) produce beguiling spatial scenarios that explore social and sexual politics and unveil the power structures embedded in the everyday designs that surround us. In their uncanny installations, institutional spaces are transformed into metaphors for individual desires and collective identities with subversive wit and tongue-in-cheek melancholy.

This exhibition juxtaposes a survey of their emotional figurative sculptures with an extraordinary new large-scale installation that meditates on the fate of civic space.

Civic spaces and sexual politics. Hyper-realist works and subversive installations. Duo Elmgreen & Dragset will present their first major UK show, This Is How We Bite Our Tongue, from 27 September.

Flick of The Week The Children Act

What's On THE CHILDREN ACT 1 | imjussayin.com/whatson

about


Based on the much-loved novel by Ian McEwan (Atonement), The Children Act is a compelling and powerful drama telling the story of Fiona Maye (Emma Thompson), an eminent high court judge presiding over ethically complex cases.

As the demands of her job cause her marriage to Jack (Stanley Tucci) to reach tipping point, Fiona is asked to rule on the case of Adam (Fionn Whitehead), a brilliant young boy who is refusing a life-saving blood transfusion on religious grounds.

With her private life in turmoil, Fiona finds herself drawn into the case, taking the unorthodox step of halting proceedings in order to visit Adam in hospital.

As the two form a profound connection and powerful emotions come to light, Fiona’s judgement is put to the test with momentous consequences as she must ultimately decide whether Adam lives or dies.

‘A highly watchable drama of the highly educated public-servant class.’

England, 1915. With all the men fighting at the Front, six women in a munitions factory have taken over the male jobs – until they go one step further, and decide to play some of the inventors of modern technological warfare themselves.

In the centenary of the last year of the First World War, an all-female cast play characters ranging from Sir Hiram Maxim, inventor of the machine gun, to the ‘father of chemical warfare’ Fritz Haber – the German Jewish chemist whose work on poison gas would go on to be used to exterminate his own people in the Holocaust just 25 years later – in a magical epic from acclaimed poet and playwright Tony Harrison on the devastating impact of weapons of mass destruction.

An Adventure @ Bush Theatre
06 Sept – 20 Oct Tickets

about


On a stormy night in 1954, a woman doomed to marry one of five men discovers the wildcard choice might just be the person she’d been hoping for all along. An Adventure follows headstrong Jyoti and her fumbling suitor Rasik as they ride the crest of the fall of Empire from the shores of post-Partition India to the forests of Mau Mau Kenya onto the industrial upheaval of 1970s London and the present day.

But what happens when youthful ambitions crash hard against reality? When you look back at the story of your time together, can you bear to ask yourself: Was it all worth it?

Vinay Patel’s ambitious new drama follows strong-willed Jyoti and the love-sick Rasik on their epic journey from 1950s India to war-torn Kenya and present-day London. Inspired by the experiences of Patel’s own immigrant grandparents, An Adventure is a love story of unprecedented scope and heart.

What's On I OBJECT 1 | imjussayin.com/whatson

What’s On Recommends
I Object Ian Hislop @ British Museum
06 Sept – 20 Jan Tickets

about

History, as somebody wise once said, is just one damned thing after another. But is it really? Who decides what is ‘history’?

Traditionally, the answer is ‘the winners’. But in this exhibition the BM is setting out to investigate what the other people had to say – the downtrodden, the forgotten, the protestors. They left their marks on objects, just as the official view has, and these dissenting objects are also to be found in the BM collection.

A wide variety of objects will be on display in the exhibition – from graffiti on a Babylonian brick to a banknote with hidden rude words, from satirical Turkish shadow puppets to a recently acquired ‘pussy’ hat worn on a women’s march. See what tales these objects tell – sometimes deadly serious, often humorous, always with conviction. Unlock the messages and symbols these people used, and get closer to understanding them. The British Museum doesn’t escape ridicule either !
