New Video: Olafur Eliasson Offers Trust to the Viewer

In a new film from our Extended Play series, Olafur Eliasson invites viewers to project their own subjective context onto the reading of his artwork. Eliasson attributes this approach to his childhood experiences traveling through the Icelandic landscape and his discovery of Light and Space movement artists like James Turrell and Robert Irwin during art school. For Eliasson, both experiences encouraged him to think about the relationship between space and movement—the agency of the viewer and the responsibility of the artist.

This is the fifth and final in a series of five new Art21 films premiering throughout Spring/Summer 2019.
