Your successful uncertainty
21.02.2014 – 16.04.2014
The exhibition Your successful uncertainty collects a variety of recent and new works in which the artist explores human perception. The artworks – including optical devices, light installations, a hanging compass, and a photo series – encourage the viewer to engage critically with the subjectivity of reflection and its possible distortions.
Olafur Eliasson (born 1967) studied at the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen from 1989 to 1995. In 1995, he founded Studio Olafur Eliasson in Berlin, which today has a team of about seventy people, including craftsmen, architects, and art historians. His work, which he describes as “experimental setups”, includes photography, sculpture, drawing and film, as well as major projects in public space. In Sanford Kwinter’s words: “The project of Olafur Eliasson has been to subject spatial and aesthetic practice to the rigors of both knowledge and invention, and at one and the same time”.
