An adept of unforgettable experiences, Olafur Eliasson reconnects with his London audience, still dazzled by his Weather Project. For his return to the Tate Modern in London (in partnership with Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum), the artist has chosen to exhibit scholarly and sensory works never shown before, which are inspired by natural phenomena and question our relationship with the elements around us. Eliasson will be keen to show the results of her latest research on geometry and colour theory, bringing new insights on issues such as energy or migration. Committed to fighting global warming, he will make public the carbon impact of certain works (calculated using Julie’s Bicycle) to raise awareness in the art world of its impacts on the environment. His team will also create a special menu for the Terrace Bar. Olafur Eliasson: in real life is a large-scale and collaborative exhibition you can’t afford to miss!
