What I’m seeing lately… Olafur Eliasson

That I have a thing for installations especially connected to colours and baroque architecture is nothing new, yet after experiencing the last Olafur Eliasson exhibition I just felt compelled to show (and write a little about) this kind of contemporary art as I very much enjoy the extremes especially between baroque and contemporary art.

BAROQUE BAROQUE is an encounter between artworks, aesthetics, and worldviews from two vastly different epochs. The exhibition challenges viewers’ habits of perception and proposes that reality can be understood as unstable and evolving, as a process of constant negotiation.

Through the use of projections, shadows, and reflections, the artworks foreground the relationship between body, perception, and image. They anchor agency in the body and mind in motion as they invite the viewers’ active engagement by mirroring, fragmenting, and inverting their position within space.
