Since the early 1990s, Russian-born Ilya & Emilia Kabakov have collaborated to make complex installations that combine references to history, art, literature and philosophy. Much of their work has revolved around the creation of elaborate fictional characters and situations, with an interest in storytelling and fantasy underpinning their work.

This limited edition, produced for the Serpentine, reproduces one of Ilya Kabakov's preparatory drawings for The House of Dreams. The illustration is loosely based on the Gallery's architecture, depicting an idealised vision of the installation. The Kabakovs' work has been widely shown internationally and they have received a number of awards and public commissions. They live and work in New York.
