Olafur Eliasson

Olafur Eliasson’s Experimental Setups at Espace Muraille

Islandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson is known for his sculptures and large-scale installations. He represented Denmark at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003. His work is on view for the first time at Espace Muraille this winter, an exhibition space created by art collector Caroline Freymond in the center of the old city of Geneva. 

Art advisor Laurence Dreyfus curated this must-see exhibition, entitled “Objets définis par l’activité,”  which includes 16 works that showcase the artist’s exploration of elements such as light, water, and color. New pieces like Black glass sun, Colour window, and Wavelength lamp, are all dated 2018. Eliasson expresses himself through a scientific and artistic lens, with an emphasis placed on the urgency of protecting our planet.
