Madeleine Grynsztejn, Olafur Eliasson et al.

Olafur Eliasson

Contemporary Artists

€ 39.95

Young sculptor, photographer and installation artist Olafur Eliasson creates works that explore the relationship between nature and technology. Based in Berlin, the artist rebuilds in the gallery fragments of the environment icebergs at the Muse dArt Moderne de la Ville de Paris, windmills at the Louisiana Museum in Humlebaek, Denmark. For Eliasson, immaterial sensations such as temperature, smell, taste, air and magnetic waves become sculptural elements when presented in an art context.

Nominated in 2002 for the prestigious Hugo Boss prize, Eliasson has become a favourite in recent Biennales of contemporary art.

Scandinavian curator Daniel Birnbaum discusses with the artist the role of location and the immediate environment in both his gallery (indoor) and remote-site (outdoor) work. In her Survey curator Madeleine Grynsztejn examines the unique position of this new international art star who overlaps architectural, technological and artistic innovation. Architecture theorist Michael Speaks looks at the artists Green River (1998), particularly in relation to Antonionis 1964 film, Red Desert. For his Artists Choice the artist has selected an extract from Henri Bergsons Creative Evolution (1907) dealing with our subjective, visual response to nature a central theme in the artists own work. Olafur Eliassons writings include essays on such topics as the weather and colour, as well as an open letter entitled Dear Everybody, addressed to the viewers moving through his artwork.
