Seminal artist Olafur Eliasson continues to elevate his interdisciplinary practice in a forthcoming exhibition at Tate Modern. Entitled “In Real Life,” the London presentation will display captivating installations with the Danish-Icelandic artist exploring complex geometry, motion patterns, and color theory across several new works. The highlight of the show is an interactive work that toys with light, shadow, and the bodily forms of museumgoers.

“Within the exhibition will be an area which explores Eliasson’s deep engagement with society and the environment. Discover what an artist’s perspective can bring to issues of climate change, energy, migration as well as architecture. And once every other week you’ll be able to communicate with people from Eliasson’s 100-strong team in his Berlin studio via a live link,” said the museum in a statement.

“In Real Life” will run though July 11 until January 5, 2020. Visit Tate Modern’s website to learn more. For more striking presentations, Anders Ruhwald’s installation in Detroit that evokes a haunting apartment ravaged by a fire.

Hot off the presses, we’ve just received a copy of the catalogue for In real life, designed by one of our studio favourites, Michael Jensen! The publication gives insight into Olafur’s thinking through 18 conversations between him and a wide range of dear friends and collaborators, including architects, musicians, chronobiologists, neuroscientists, and ballet dancers, emphasizing his diverse interests and illustrate his investment in dialogue as a form of engagement with the world. One out of this great motley crew of conversation partners is @Fab5Freddy, whom Olafur was inspired by after seeing the film Wild Style as a teenager, back in the Danish countryside. Freddy was one of the reasons Olafur’s got into breakdancing and graffiti in the first place. ‘You know, I didn’t know a lot about your work until the New York City Waterfalls [2008], which I would notice at night driving home across the East River to my house in Harlem. I guess you claimed that space thoroughly and totally! Especially at night. There would be some lights on it, and it was just so exciting to drive past. I would almost crash trying to be sure I got a good look at it. It’s so great to hear that hip-hop urban culture and street dance were sparks for that. Yours is one of the most unique stories I have heard about how this movement influenced someone. I could not have dreamt this up!’ —Fab 5 Freddy in conversation with Olafur Stay tuned as we dive further into the topic of movement, as we’ll share contents from the Body section of our ideas map. @tate @tatepublishing #inreallife #EliassonAlphabet
