Museo Guggenheim de Bilbao: Olafur Eliasson, ‘In Real Life’

 
This retrospective gathers 40 works completed since 1990. The exhibition includes pieces of different format – installations, sculptures, photographs, and paintings – made with materials ranging from moss or fog to light and reflective metals, and invites us to immerse ourselves in the three questions that have shaped the interest and creative process of Olafur Eliasson (Copenhagen, 1967) during his career: his concern for nature, his research into geometry, and his ongoing investigations into how we perceive, feel, and shape the world around us.

Most of the work of the Danish artist – who lived in Iceland as a child – is connected to climate issues, with themes like water, light, or fog. The reflection on the natural resources is the guiding thread of his whole artistic career. In Real Life wants to center our collective conscience on climate change, but this time as an urgent matter.
