Reality is relative
The Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson (b. 1967) is one of the most important figures in the contemporary art scene. He creates immersive installations that speak to our senses and dissolve the boundaries between the viewer and the work. His spatial works invite us to think about our selves and our perception as well as the important issues of our time.The new works the artist created specially for the Kunsthaus focus on the relationship between people, animals, plants and other species inhabiting Earth.
‘My senses are my experiential guides – they generate my innermost awareness of time while generously giving depth to my surroundings. Constantly and critically invested in the world of today, they receive, evaluate, and produce my reality.’
