Olafur Eliasson and Reality machines

A fan circles in an irregular orbit above our heads, water squirts up in cascades, and in another room we can walk in a labyrinthine architecture of coloured space. These works are part of the exhibition Olafur Eliasson: Verklighetsmaskiner/Reality machines, organised by Moderna Museet in association with ArkDes (the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design).

Olafur Eliasson (b. 1967, Denmark/Iceland) is one of the most acclaimed international artists today. Since the early 1990s, his works have been presented in countless exhibitions all over the world. Eliasson uses a variety of media, including sculpture, photography, film and installation, but he also creates architectural projects and site-specific pieces for public spaces. Light, wind and water in every conceivable form feature prominently. And yet, nature is present in the works as material rather than as subject matter.

The exhibtion runs 3 October 2015 – 17 January 2016 at Moderna Museet
