About Olafur Eliasson
Olafur Eliasson was born in 1967 in Copenhagen (Denmark). He currently lives and works in Berlin (Germany).
Olafur Eliasson’s art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. Eliasson strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world. Eliasson’s diverse works – in sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installations – have been exhibited widely throughout the world. Not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, his practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects and interventions in civic space.
Olafur Eliasson is represented by i8 Gallery.
