BAROQUE BAROQUE, presented in Vienna, brings together a selection of Olafur Eliasson’s works displayed in the grand, baroque rooms of the Winter Palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy. Eliasson’s multi-faceted sculptures engage with the opulent architecture through light, reflection and space: “Surprising affinities between Eliasson’s works and their temporary settings become evident as the juxtapositions explore the relationships between object and viewer, representation and experience, actual and virtual, giving rise to a concept of the baroque superimposed on itself — the BAROQUE BAROQUE.” said the founders of TBA21.
