The title of this Penguin Classic look-alike is taken from a poem that Michael Elmgreen wrote when he was 19 years old. The poem describes, in its own simple, youthful manner, issues of emotional homelessness. Home traditionally alludes to family, local context and nationality--to structures which are pre-set and often disconnected to one's individual desires. For Home is Where the Heart Is, the Norwegian-Danish artist duo asked friends and colleagues to react to their own notions of home--as a place they left... or didn't. Featuring texts and image-based contributions by the likes of Bill Arning, Monica Bonvicini, Jens Hoffmann and David Shrigley, among many others, this volume tackles the issue of emotional homelessness with curious intelligence. Berlin-based Michael Elmgreen (born in 1961 in Denmark) and Ingar Dragset (born in 1969 in Norway) have collaborated since 1995. They have had recent solo exhibitions at the Serpentine Gallery in London and The Power Plant, Toronto.show more
