Most widely held works by Ólafur Elíasson
Olafur Eliasson by Madeleine Grynsztejn ( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and French and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With images that suggest a modern day Caspar David Friedrich, sculptor, installation artist and photographer Olafur Eliasson recreates in elegant forms the extremes of the landscape and the atmospheric conditions of his native Denmark, resulting in a kind of techno-Romanticism. Now based in Berlin, Eliasson rebuilds in the gallery fragments of a faraway land: icebergs at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, 'windmills' at the Louisiana Museum in Humlebaek, Denmark. For Eliasson, immaterial sensations such as temperature, smell, taste, air and magnetic waves become sculptural elements. A simple circular cut in the ceiling of a gallery in Los Angeles, for example, recreates the feeling of the weak Scandinavian sun, and becomes a kind of giant sun-clock reminiscent of both Gordon Matta-Clark's architectural cut-outs and the oculus of the Pantheon." "In her survey, curator Madeleine Grynsztejn examines the unique position of the artist, overlapping technological and artistic innovation in the creation of his art. Critic and curator Daniel Birnbaum discusses with the artist the role of location and the immediate environment in both his gallery (indoor) and remote-site (outdoor) work. Architectural theorist Michael Speaks looks in his Focus at the work Green river (1998) particularly in relation to filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni's 1964 film, Red Desert. The artist has selected an extract from Henri Bergson's Creative Evolution (1907) dealing with our subjective, visual response to nature, a theme central also in the artist's own work. Olafur Eliasson's writings include an essay on that most banal of topics, the weather, and an open letter entitled 'Dear Everybody' addressed to the viewers."--Jacket

Take your time : Olafur Eliasson by Ólafur Elíasson ( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the art of Olafur Eliasson, the sun can rise inside a museum and rainbows can appear indoors. His immersive installations explore the intersection of nature and artifice, transforming ordinary spaces into sites of wonder and spectacle. From kaleidoscopes to waterfalls to mirrored passageways, the projects invite the viewer's active participation while passing provocative questions about the workings of human perception. Published in conjunction with a major survey organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, this catalogue presents a series of original essays investigating the complex origins and implications of Eliasson's practice. More than two hundred color reproductions offer a rich overview of his most significant artworks from 1990 to the present."--Jacket

"Two framing devices have been employed in this edition of 'The Hospitality of Presence" : an anthology of citations from writers who explore Husserl's themes in a fashion that seems to radically alter the point of view, and a series of interventions by artist Olafur Eliasson, an artist whose work can be understood as an attempt to position our perceptual possibilities within a framework that goes beyond ther perspectives of a phenomenology of embodiment, no matter how sophisticated." -- inside front cover
