Elmgreen & Dragset / Berlin

„Bonne Chance“ at Centre Pompidou-Metz
June 10th, 2023 until April 1st, 2024

“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.
