Art enthusiasts may remember Olafur Eliasson from his popular “The Weather Project” back in 2003, which combined yellow lamps, mirrors, and mist to create the illusion of a sun hanging over the museum hall. Now, Eliasson is coming back to the Tate Modern in London with his most impressive display yet. His career retrospective, called “Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life,” will be a combination of the artist’s older and more recent works, spanning his entire career.
Among the exhibits you will find “Moss Wall,” a nearly 200-foot-wide curtain of reindeer moss; “Beauty,” an illuminated mist that looks like a surreal indoor rainbow; and “Your spiral view,” a kaleidoscopic tunnel you can walk through. One of Eliasson’s newest works, however, which will also be on display, is called “Din blinde passager” (Your blind passenger). This piece consists of a room dense with fog, which slowly turns deep shades of yellow and purple to create a disorienting effect.
