About
Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson (b. 1967) is known for sculptures and large-scale installation art employing elemental materials such as light, water, and air temperature to enhance the viewer’s experience. In 1995 he established Studio Olafur Eliasson in Berlin, a laboratory for spatial research.

Eliasson’s work is a result from careful research into complex geometry, motion patterns, and colour theory and often employs reflections and shadows to play with the way we perceive and interact with the world.

Since the mid-1990s, Eliasson has realised numerous major exhibitions and projects around the world. In 2003, Eliasson represented Denmark at the 50th Venice Biennale, with The blind pavilion and later that year, he installed The weather project in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, London. A survey exhibition organised by SFMOMA in 2007 Take your time: Olafur Eliasson travelled until 2010 to various venues, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
