Most widely held works by Ólafur Elíasson
Olafur Eliasson by Madeleine Grynsztejn( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and French and held by 569 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

Olafur Eliasson : the weather project by Ólafur Elíasson( Book )
8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 188 libraries worldwide
"Olafur Eliasson has established an international reputation for works that suggest evocations of nature - from fog-filled rooms to rainbows - which, combined with modern technology, produce situations of sublime beauty. His practice explores human perception and subjectivity, and the boundaries between nature and culture. In this book, Eliasson takes the ubiquitous subject of the weather as a point of departure, examining ideas of representation, mediation and the temporal qualities of space, a process that culminates in his extraordinary installation in Tate Modern."--BOOK JACKET

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 großen 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, Großprojekte 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)

Bílar í ám = Cars in rivers by Ólafur Elíasson( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in Icelandic and held by 52 libraries worldwide
Renseignements provenant du libraire parisien Christophe Daviet-Thery: "A wanted ad brought 35 photographs to artist Olafur Eliasson. Using these photographs, he formed the series "Cars in rivers" in 2009. By orchestrating the photos sent to him by jeep driving adventurers, Olafur Eliasson pays homage to a cultural activity born out of a direct smuggle with nature, since motorized exploration of the Icelandic highlands is only a recent experience. The book is also an homage to the "unknwon explorer" and his extensive terrain, sublime nature. At the same time the series can, in a symbolic way, describe the economic crisis the Icelandic nation has been enduring. The metaphor of a half sunk jeep stranded in the middle of a raging river is unmistakable."
