The central work “Riverbed (2014)” at the museum by the Danish-Icelandic artist is a huge, sitespecific project that reverses the relation between nature and art. The exhibition consists of three spatial sections that each thematize the encounter between Eliasson’s art and Louisiana as a place, physically, architecturally and institutionally.
The focus on the visitor and bodily movement through space is where Louisiana’s identity as a place and Eliasson’s practice as an artist intersect.
