Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life | Mind-bending exhibition at the Tate Modern
Indoor rainbows. Mirrored tunnels. A room filled with fog.
Olafur Eliasson’s new show is not to be mist.
Called ‘In Real Life’, it’s coming to the Tate Modern this summer, and will include over 30 of his most impressive installations from the last three decades of his work. They’ll make use of vivid colour, geometric shadows, fountains, tunnels, living walls of Icelandic moss, and a lot more to communicate his “deep engagement with society and the environment” (and generally drop your jaw).
And as well as feeding your mind, he’ll also be feeding your actual stomach with the Studio Olafur Eliasson Kitchen. It’s a restaurant popping up in the Tate’s Terrace Bar, which will be transformed with Eliasson’s artworks & light fittings. There, it’ll cook up organic, vegetarian meals served family style, exactly as they are at his studio in Berlin, where the restaurant originated. Sound like a good idea in theory…
…and In Real Life.
NOTE: Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life is coming to the Tate Modern from 11th July 2019 – 5th January 2020. You can book tickets (£18) and find out more at the website right HERE.
