Olafur Eliasson at Tate Modern

On 11th July, Tate Modern will present a retrospective exhibition of works by Olafur Eliasson. The show will follow his 2003 world-renowned Turbine Hall installation The weather project. Marking the most comprehensive solo-presentation of Eliasson’s work, and his first major survey in the UK, Olafur Eliasson: In real life will examine the artist’s favourite themes including perception, movement, people and their environments. The artist’s large-scale installation feature materials such as light, water, and air temperature to enhance the viewer’s experience.

Tate Modern will bring together around 40 works spanning the last three decades – from celebrated early installations like Beauty 1993, to new paintings and sculptures. The exhibition will also examine Eliasson’s deep engagement with issues of climate change, sustainable energy and migration as well as architecture.
