Olafur Eliasson: Experience | Phaidon

Regular price $180.00

A truly great artist and one of my favourites, this book gives real insight to a complex multi-dimensional practice. A wonderful, if hefty, gift!

Conceived in close collaboration with the artist, this updated and expanded monograph survey tracks Olafur Eliasson's artistic practice from the 1990s to the present day, including recent exhibitions at Tate Modern, London (In real life, 2019) and the Beyeler Foundation, Basel (Life, 2021).

Through hundreds of illustrations bracketed by writings on and by Eliasson, this book provides an unparalleled overview of his remarkably accessible output, from such large-scale interactive experiences as The weather project at Tate Modern, London (2003) to smaller, more delicate works on paper or made of glass, and includes photography, painting, and film.
