Exhibition opening today, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark, until 4 January 2015.
Olafur Eliasson fills the entire South Wing of the Louisiana with a huge project that reverses the relationship between nature outside and art inside. Eliasson has exhibited at Louisiana several times, but so far it has either been the presentation of new acquisitions to the permanent collection or thematic shows such as The World is Yours, in which he contributed an ice-covered car entitled Your Mobile Expectations. This exhibition, in contrast, is very much a site-specific project. For the artist, Louisiana is a museum characterised by the interplay between nature and architecture, and he makes the museum itself and its identity a theme.
