Olafur Eliasson: Y/Our Future Is Now
This is the most recent publication about the work of Olafur Eliasson, exploring some of his main concerns – movement and fluidity, the walk and dialogue we establish with the space that surrounds us and with the presence of the work of art.
Developed in close collaboration with Studio Olafur Eliasson, this publication includes an unpublished text by Gonçalo M. Tavares and an essay by the artist himself, along with views of the works currently installed in the Museum and Serralves Park, as well as a visual essay by Eliasson inspired by the natural and architectural characteristics of Serralves.
The book also includes pages dedicated to archival images of Olafur's previous works, inviting a deeper knowledge of the artist's work.
Eliasson is a Danish-Icelandic artist known for creating works of art that cross the boundaries of conventional exhibition spaces - such as the museum and gallery - to take an active presence in civic space.
The artist uses elementary materials such as light, water and temperature to enhance the spectator's experience and boost art through his interests in perception, movement and experience.
In 1995 he founded Studio Olafur Eliasson, which today has a large team of artisans, architects, archivists, researchers, administrators, cooks, programmers, art historians, and specialized technicians.
