“Bonne Chance” is an exhibition to get lost in. Spanning the Forum, the Grande Nef, and Roof Terrace 2, you will journey through a labyrinthine structure, encountering a number of familiar yet surreal scenarios.
Combining sculpture, installation, and performance, Elmgreen & Dragset invite you to explore spaces and mundane situations from our everyday lives, imagined as a survival game. Some of these environments are inhabited by solitary figures, while others are empty: an abandoned office landscape, a morgue, a TV studio, a theatre, a public bathroom. The world created in “Bonne Chance” is like a giant stage set where you are the protagonist—and it’s up to you to decide what direction the story will take. You can try your luck or try to take a short cut in Elmgreen & Dragset’s maze, but in the end, this game seems to be less about winning and more about redefining the rules.
For the installation “Should I Stay or Should I Go”, which is part of the exhibition, REIER supplied a freestanding display case, similar to the standard type H 13, customised with a stainless steel shelf tray, suspended aluminium light box, LED line lighting above an opaque sky panel and ventilation openings.
