OLAFUR ELIASSON – WATERCOLOURS

Pinakothek der Moderne Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München

Without doubt, the Danish installation artist of Icelandic origin, Olafur Eliasson (b. 1967), is one of the most outstanding artists of our times. Like no other, he captures the imagination of people around the globe – also outside the museum world – with his large art projects. His drawings are still of central importance to his work that encompasses all other media. Initial ideas are formulated in drawings that the artist refers to time and again in the course of a project. The impression is given that Eliasson’s thought process is recorded in such drawings.

The comprehensive exhibition ‘WATERcolours‘ at the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München is a world premiere that presents Olafur Eliasson’s multifaceted skills as a draughtsman for the first time. The curatorial idea is to show the close emotional and intellectual congruence between his drawings and his installation art and to let them be re-lived as a sensuous experience.
