Olafur Eliasson: Experience, revised and expanded edition, published by Phaidon, is an updated version of the 2018 edition, produced in collaboration with the artist himself. Olafur Eliasson is an Icelandic-Danish artist who is best known for his huge interactive works that touch feelings and all the senses. The more than 500-page book takes a deep dive not only into his most famous works and exhibitions but also into lesser-known photographs, paintings and films, tracing his artistic career all from the 1990s to the 2020s.
Conceived in close collaboration with the artist, this updated survey tracks Eliasson's artistic practice from the 1990s to the present day, including recent exhibitions at Tate Modern, London (In real life, 2019) and the Beyeler Foundation, Basel (Life, 2021).
Through hundreds of illustrations bracketed by writings on and by Eliasson, this book provides an unparalleled overview of his remarkably accessible output, from such large-scale interactive experiences as The weather project at Tate Modern, London (2003) to smaller, more delicate works on paper or made of glass, and includes photography, painting, and film.
