Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life
A True Sensory Experience
Tate Modern, London

After flooding the Turbine Hall with the rays of a virtual sun that attracted crowds in 2003, Olafur Eliasson (Copenhagen, 1967) has returned to the Tate Modern 16 years later with a retrospective exhibition that gathers 40 pieces designed since 1990. ‘In Real Life’ invites us to explore the three issues that have guided the interests and creative process of the Danish artist: the concern for ecology, the research in the field of geometry, and the exploration of human perception, in an attempt to grasp how we sense and shape the world around us.
