NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

I was photographing a party at the Victoria and Albert Museum on Thursday night, and (along with everyone else at the event) was given a preview of the conceptual artist partnership Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset's major new exhibition 'Tomorrow' which is staged in - or so we are led to believe - the rather dimly-lit apartment of elderly architect Norman Swann, who sadly has had to sell his home to settle rising debts.  The meticulous details in each room create an utterly convincing environment, as does the giant hoarding outside which gives away nothing of the fiction inside.  The next morning I was able to listen to Elmgreen and Dragset present the thought processes behind some of the artistic collaborations of their career so far, while I took some more photographs of course.  Appropriately enough, the exhibition opens to the public tomorrow and runs until 2 January 2014.
