The drama of nature: Olafur Eliasson's light and mirror installations from 1990 to the present - a splendid and unprecedented comprehensive survey.

Olafur Eliasson's installation entitled The Weather Project cast a veritable spell over visitors to the Tate Modern in London as they gazed in wonder into a glowing artificial sun shrouded in mist in an exhibition setting transformed by the work into a neo-Romantic landscape. In his installations, the Danish-Icelandic artist, born in 1967 in Copenhagen, focuses on the factors that influence human perception in the age of technology - an approach that is more timely today than ever before. In an era in which our relationship to the world around us is shaped by the mediatization of human perception and our awareness of fundamental environmental loss, the juxtaposition of the natural and the artificial in Eliasson's art compels us to reassess our notions about the authentic experience of nature. Works concerned with the phenomenon of light play an important role within Eliasson's oeuvre. Featuring an index of the 138 light and mirror installations completed between 1990 and 2004, this splendidly illustrated volume describes all of the essential aspects of this work complex. (English edition available ISBN 3-7757-1441-3) Exhibition schedule: Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, May 29-August 5, 2004
