Olafur Eliasson: “Reality projector” at Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles07:16

Join Marciano Art Foundation Deputy Director, Jamie G. Manné as she discusses the cinematic and sublime qualities of Olafur Eliasson's M.A.F. theatre exhibition, "Reality projector." Eliasson says of the installation - "Now you see what you get. And there is a degree of honesty or transparency in that, and I like that in architecture. That when you look at it, the architecture reveals that it is not magic, this is structure."

Olafur Eliasson, born 1967, grew up in Iceland and Denmark. In 1995, he moved to Berlin and founded Studio Olafur Eliasson, which today encompasses some ninety craftsmen, specialized technicians, architects, archivists, administrators, programmers, art
historians, and cooks.

Since the mid-1990s, Eliasson has realized numerous major exhibitions and projects around the world. In 2003, Eliasson represented Denmark at the 50th Venice Biennale and later that year, he installed The weather project in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall,
London. Take your time: Olafur Eliasson, a survey exhibition organized by SFMOMA in 2007, travelled until 2010 to various venues, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Eliasson’s projects in public space include The New York City Waterfalls, 2008, commissioned by Public Art Fund, and Ice watch, which brought melting icebergs from Greenland to Copenhagen in 2014 and to Paris on the occasion of the COP21 Climate Conference in 2015.
