Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life, Tate Modern - ★★★★★ - Until January 5, 2020


Olafur Eliasson's creations are both curiosity and value driven. They are not confined by medium or genre, and they appeal both to the senses and the mind. This show covers almost three decades of his work from Moss Wall to Waterfall, specifically created for this show. The installations are innovative and draw both on geometry and nature for their inspiration. They both delight and provoke, challenging thought and perception. We were confounded by Din blind passenger (Your blind passenger) and delighted by Big Bang Fountain. This is art you experience and interact with both as an individual and as part of a community. There is so much here, so set aside enough time for the experience. And, be sure to spend some of that time in The Expanded Studio and learn about projects like the Little Sun and Green Light - An artistic workshop. Eliasson's notion for a studio is fascinating and his practical commitment to social and environmental issues is inspiring. The artist's eclectic set of interests and commitments extends to food and the Tate Modern's Terrace Bar has a special Eliasson-inspired menu!
