OLAFUR ELIASSON | Your Chance Encounter, slow motion shadows

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson presents his work called ‘Your Chance Encounter’.
Eliasson explores and plays with the architecture and functionality of the museum walls, bringing the institution to life, changing its rooms and corridors through his use of light, mirrors, shadow, color, wind and fog.
‘…To emphasize that it can be important to blur the boundaries between the traditional art object and space.’
The artist’s idea is to dematerialize the traditional objecthood in art. Also, in his way, he wants to open a dialogue and relationship between his work and the viewer, making his art accessible and interactive. The creation of a space in which to question our presence within this world.
