A solo exhibition Olafur Eliasson: Sometimes the river is the bridge, the Danish-Icelandic artist’s first exhibition in Japan in ten years will be held at Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (MOT) from June 9th to September 27th, 2020.
Since the early 1990s, Olafur Eliasson (b. 1967) has built up a wide-ranging artistic practice that spans the fields of design, photography, architecture, installation, sculpture and drawing.
Sometimes the river is the bridge features a representative selection of his works, many of which have never been seen before in Japan. This includes “Beauty” (1993), where a rainbow emerges in a darkened space, early and recent installations that use natural materials; sculptures that reflect Eliasson’s long-held interest in light and geometry; photographic series; drawings and watercolours; and documentation of several of the artist’s interventions in public space.
