Previews: ‘Olafur Eliasson: In real life’ @ Tate Modern (London)
Olafur Eliasson returns to Tate Modern with Olafur Eliasson: In real life. This is the Danish-Icelandic artist’s first major UK exhibition and survey of his career to date. It comes 16 years after 2003’s The weather project, his world-renown piece which transformed the museum’s Turbine Hall “into a social space where sculpture was bound up with the experience of being together with other visitors.”
The show consists of over 40 works including immersive installations, sculpture, photography and paintings — on Level 2 of the Blavatnik Building, but also at the Terrace Bar and in the Turbine Hall, along with a waterfall outside on the South Terrace. AM especially recommends walking through Din blinde passager (Your blind passenger), a beautiful and sometimes unsettling fog corridor.
Olafur Eliasson: In real life opens on 11 July and continues until 5 January 2020.
