OLAFUR ELIASSON: TAKE YOUR TIME: MCA Chicago
Take your time: Olafur Eliasson is the first comprehensive survey in the United States of works by Olafur Eliasson, whose immersive environments, sculptures, and photographs elegantly re-create the extremes of landscape and atmosphere of his native Scandinavia. Drawn from collections worldwide, the presentation spans over 15 years of Eliasson’s career. His constructions—at once eccentric and highly geometric—use multicolored washes, focused projections of light, mirrors, and natural elements such as water, stone, and moss to shift the viewer’s perception of place and self, foregrounding the sensory experience of each work. By transforming the gallery into a hybrid space of nature and culture, Eliasson prompts an intense engagement with the world and offers a fresh consideration of everyday life.
Take your time: Olafur Eliasson is organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
