Olafur Eliasson


by Olafur Eliasson

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 01/04/2015

Danish artist Olafur Eliasson has received global acclaim for his works, which harness the power of light and color to striking effect. Renowned for his large-scale installations-which often extend beyond museum walls or encompass the viewer-the artist renders contemporary art accessible. He experiments with light, color, and space, exploring the idea of perception and engaging the spectator in his own personal experience of the artwork. The book opens with a virtual visit through Eliasson's artwork. Authoritative essays place his exhibition at the Fondation Louis Vuitton into context within the body of his previous works. The volume is completed with an extensive interview by the exhibition's curators, the artist's sketches and preparatory drawings for the show, a biography, bibliography, and list of works. An innovative layout by the talented Dutch graphic designer Irma Boom features the artist's works printed in full color on black paper, thereby emphasizing the hues of the light beams and showcasing the interplay of shadow and light, making this volume a veritable artist's book.
