The catalog dedicated to the exhibition "In Real Life", which Olafur Eliasson designed specifically for Tate Modern, London, from 11 July 2019 to 6 January 2020.

In Eliasson's captivating installations, visitors become aware of their senses, of the people around them and of the world. Some artworks introduce natural phenomena, such as rainbows, into the gallery space. Others use reflections and shadows to play with the way we perceive and interact with the world. Many works stem from the artist's research into complex geometry, patterns of movement and his interest in color theory.

In this exhibition there is an area that explores Eliasson's deep involvement with society and the environment. It challenges the visitor to discover what an artist's perspective can bring to issues of climate change, energy, migration and architecture.

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.
