Description

Over the years, Olafur Eliasson has repeatedly returned to Iceland, his parent's homeland, to explore and document the country's unique landscape. These expeditions have resulted in several series of photographs, from which many other works in Eliasson's manifold oeuvre have emerged. The systemized photographic examination of particular motifs – from glaciers and waterfalls to rainbows and sunsets – finds its continuation in Eliasson's sculptural work and installations, which at the same time analyze and stage the natural phenomena found in Iceland.
