Museum of Contemporary Art in association with Sydney Festival
This summer the MCA presents the must-see contemporary art event of the year. Take your time: Olafur Eliasson is the first large-scale exhibition of works by the Danish/Icelandic artist presented in Australia.
Gathering works from major collections worldwide, it spans Eliasson’s diverse career from 1993 to the present and includes large-scale installations, sculpture and photography. Eliasson’s practice is informed by Iceland’s primordial landscape and spectacular weather. He draws upon elements such as light, water, ice, fog, arctic moss and lava rock to create works that shift the viewer’s perception and sense of place.
From light-filled environments to walk-in kaleidoscopes, Eliasson’s unique, experiential works explore the intersection between nature and science, and the boundary between the organic and the artificial.
