Gathering works from major collections worldwide, it spans Eliassonís diverse career from 1993 to the present, including installations, sculpture and photography.

Raised partly in Iceland, Eliassonís practice is informed by that countryís landscape and spectacular weather. He draws upon elements such as light, water, ice, fog, arctic moss and lava rock to create works that shift viewer perception and sense of place.

From light-filled environments to walk-in kaleidoscopes, Eliassonís unique, experiential works explore the intersection between nature and science, and the boundary between the organic and the artificial.
