Olafur Eliasson by Madeleine Grynsztejn( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and French and held by 537 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

2 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Olafur Eliasson (geb. 1967 in Kopenhagen, lebt und arbeitet in Berlin und Kopenhagen) ist bildender Künstler; seit 1997 zeigt er seine Werke in von der Kritik gefeierten Ausstellungen in groen Museen in aller Welt. 2003 installierte er The weather project in der Turbinenhalle der Tate Modern in London. Er hat verschiedene Projekte im öffentlichen Raum, darunter Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2007 in London, The New York City Waterfalls, 2008 und Your rainbow panorama in Aarhus, 2011 ausgeführt. In seinem Atelier, das er 1995 gründete, arbeitet Eliasson mit einem Team von Handwerkern, Architekten, Geometern und Kunsthistorikern zusammen. Als Professor an der Berliner Universität der Künste leitet Olafur Eliasson seit April 2009 das Institut für Raumexperimente, eine innovative Modelleinrichtung in der Künstlerausbildung. Kennzeichnend für Eliassons Praxis ist seine unablässige Erkundung unserer Wahrnehmungs- weisen. Seine Arbeiten, die der Künstler als „Versuchsanordnungen“ beschreibt, umfassen Fotografien, Installationen, Skulpturen, Filme, Groprojekte im öffentlichen Raum und Architektur. Sein Werk schlägt oft eine Brücke zwischen Kunst und Wissenschaft. Unter Einbeziehung der menschlichen Wahrnehmung hat Eliasson Werke mit Kultstatus geschaffen, die den Betrachter auffordern, sich mit seiner Umgebung auseinanderzusetzen, einen Prozess, den der Künstler als „Sich-spüren-sehen“ beschrieben hat. 0Exhibition: Mönchehaus Museum, Goslar, Germany (12.10.2013-26.1.2014)

The hospitality of presence : problems of otherness in Husserl's phenomenology by Daniel Birnbaum( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
