Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is back to Tate Modern, with major new exhibition In Real Life, including over 40 of his captivating installations, with most of them never seen in the UK before.
Known for sculptures and large-scale installations consisting of elemental materials such as light, water, and air temperature, Eliasson introduces the natural phenomena to the gallery space.
Eliasson has a long relationship with Tate Modern. His glowing sun, The weather project, drew more than two million people to the Turbine Hall in 2003. More recently Ice Watch 2018 brought chunks of ice from Greenland to London. This exhibition will provide another unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages. – from Tate Modern
The exhibition explores Eliasson’s deep engagement with society and the environment, as well as the issues of climate change, energy, migration and architecture. The visitors will be able to communicate with people from Eliasson’s team via a live link, once every other week.
The exhibition will be on see from 11 July 2019 to 5 January 2020.
