Olafur Eliasson Opening programme

From 19 to 31 October 2014 - Grotto

Olafur Eliasson Opening programme


Like a giant kaleidoscope, Eliasson's work is composed of forty-three prism-shaped columns of varying widths, which are placed along the walkway in the Grotto around the pool. The columns are illuminated from the inside. Two of the sides are covered with mirrors and the third is covered in a yellow blown-glass mosaic. Visitors are invited to walk amongst them, activating an endless interplay of reflections.


Olafur Eliasson (1967, IS-DK) lives and works in Copenhagen and Berlin.
