ART – MCA: Olafur Eliasson – Take Your Time

November 26th, 2009


  • 10 December 2009 – 11 April 2010 
  • An exhibition not to be missed!

Take your time: Olafur Eliasson gathers works from major public and private collections worldwide and spans Eliasson’s diverse range of artistic production from 1993 to the present, including installations, large-scale environments, sculpture, and photography.

Olafur Eliasson is among the most influential and widely acclaimed artists of his generation. From light-filled environments to walk-in kaleidoscopes, Olafur Eliasson’s unique participatory works offer alluring spaces that harness optical cognition and meteorological elements, examine the intersection of nature
and science, and explore the boundary between the organic and the artificial.

Having been raised partly in Iceland, Eliasson’s practice is informed by that country’s landscape and spectacular weather. He recontextualises elements such as light, water, ice, fog, arctic moss, and lava rock to create altogether new circumstances that shift the viewer’s consciousness and sense of place.
By extension, his work prompts an intensive engagement with the world and a fresh consideration of everyday life.
