It’s inevitable that I’d post about Olafur Eliasson, one of my favourite contemporary artists, especially as his exhibition In Real Life, currently at Tate Modern is one of the blockbusters of the year.
I missed experiencing his seminal Turbine Hall Weather Project in 2003 as I was living in India so, apart from the occasional UK project (see a previous post), this was a real treat. Perception, how we live and place ourselves in the world – serious subjects but often injected with a sense of playfulness.
Here are a few of my shots: from the model room display of geometric forms, some executed, others never produced,
to the colour palette analysis discs of paintings by Casper David Friedrich
I like the fact that I look like a pregnant giant in this photo with tiny people staring at my feet
The ceiling reflection of a length of piping completing a loop
and “rain” falling outside a gallery window
Looking into a space from one gallery to another – he had no idea he looked like this.
And what, do you really have to check your phone, even in here?
More to follow in a later post.
