Olafur Eliasson: In real life at Tate Modern

The exhibition comprises around 40 works from the last 26 years of the Danish-Icelandic artist's career. Eliasson hopes the show will challenge visitors' perception of reality – a common theme in his work. "When one leaves an exhibition like mine, I hope that it's not as if you had stepped into some kind of dream machine and then you walk back out into reality," Eliasson says in the video. "I really hope that you step closer to reality and see things in higher granularity." "I think that culture and art can ask questions, can entice and inspire you to evaluate things in a greater perspective," he added. The works on show also reflect the artist's interest in colour theory, geometry, the environment and natural phenomena such as waterfalls.
