  • Catalogue Essay

    Olafur Eliasson currently lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin. Eliasson studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Art before moving to Berlin to establish his studio. Throughout the past two decades, Eliasson’s projects have served as tools for exploring the cognitive and cultural conditions that inform our perception. Ranging from immersive environments of color, light, and movement to installations that recontextualize natural phenomena, his work defies the notion of art as an autonomous object and instead positions itself as part of an exchange with the actively engaged visitor and her individualized experience.
