Olafur Eliasson's writings include an essay on that most banal of topics, the weather, and an open letter entitled 'Dear Everybody' addressed to the viewers. In her survey, curator Madeleine Grynsztejn examines the unique position of the artist, overlapping technological and artistic innovation in the creation of his art. Critic and curator Daniel Birnbaum discusses with the artist the role of location and the immediate environment in both his gallery (indoor) and remote-site (outdoor) work. Architectural theorist Michael Speaks looks in his Focus at the work Green river (1998) particularly in relation to filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni's 1964 film, Red Desert.

Olafur Eliasson returns to Tate Modern with this unmissable exhibition . Some artworks introduce natural phenomena such as rainbows to the gallery space. Discover what an artist’s perspective can bring to issues of climate change, energy, migration as well as architecture. The kitchen team at Studio Olafur Eliasson have created a special menu and programme of related events for Tate Modern’s Terrace Bar, based on the organic, vegetarian and locally sourced food served in his Berlin studio. Eliasson has a long relationship with Tate Modern.

Based in Berlin, the artist rebuilds in the gallery fragments of the environment: icebergs at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and windmills at the Louisiana Museum in Humlebaek, Denmark.

Since then, Eliasson has continued to create artistic environments that take over cities, and the senses of their spectators. We explore the philosophy behind the artist’s work, and investigate his dedication to science at the Studio Olafur Eliasson.

With images that suggest a modern day Caspar David Friedrich, sculptor, installation artist and photographer Olafur Eliasson recreates in elegant forms the extremes of the landscape and the atmospheric conditions of his native Denmark, resulting in a kind of techno-Romanticism. Now based in Berlin, Eliasson rebuilds in the gallery fragments of a faraway land: icebergs at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, 'windmills' at the Louisiana Museum in Humlebaek, Denmark. For Eliasson, immaterial sensations such as temperature, smell, taste, air and magnetic waves become sculptural elements. A simple circular cut in the ceiling of a gallery in Los Angeles, for example, recreates the feeling of the weak Scandinavian sun, and becomes a kind of giant sun-clock reminiscent of both Gordon Matta-Clark's architectural cut-outs and the oculus of the Pantheon.In her survey, curator Madeleine Grynsztejn examines the unique position of the artist, overlapping technological and artistic innovation in the creation of his art. Critic and curator Daniel Birnbaum discusses with the artist the role of location and the immediate environment in both his gallery (indoor) and remote-site (outdoor) work. Architectural theorist Michael Speaks looks in his Focus at the work Green river (1998) particularly in relation to filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni's 1964 film, Red Desert. The artist has selected an extract from Henri Bergson's Creative Evolution (1907) dealing with our subjective, visual response to nature, a theme central also in the artist's own work. Olafur Eliasson's writings include an essay on that most banal of topics, the weather, and an open letter entitled 'Dear Everybody' addressed to the viewers.

Fantastic book, really glad I bought it...The only images of Olafur Eliasson's installations I'd seen were on the web, and it was great to get a chance to check out full resolution images and get a more indepth understanding of Olafurs concepts and work!
