Olafur Eliasson

In Real Life

Olafur Eliasson will return to Tate Modern following his world-renowned Turbine Hall installation The Weather Project in 2003, to present a major survey of his career so far.

Eliasson creates experiences that can be shared by all ages and this exhibition will include a selection of these captivating immersive installations.

Some, like Beauty, recreate natural phenomena such as rainbows, while others involve reflections and shadows to play with the way we navigate or perceive the world.

The exhibition will also explore Eliasson's deep engagement with social and environmental issues, such as his Little Sun project which has brought light and income to people around the world without electricity.

The show will continue with a spectacular new installation in the landscape around Tate Modern and Eliasson will also take over the Terrace Bar, turning it into a recreation of the vegetarian canteen from his Berlin studio.
