Olafur Eliasson

The Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson has had several major exhibitions at for instance Tate Modern in London, Guggenheim Museum in New York, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo. Eliasson has also made the relief walls near the restrooms in the Opera House in Oslo. Eliasson studied from 1989 to 1995 at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.

The artist allows geometric shapes, lights and mirror effects to create dynamics in his installations. An essential part of the artworks is the active participation of the viewer.
