Olafur Eliasson: Your Lighthouse: Works with Light 1991 - 2004
WOLFSBURG  •  Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg  •  Ongoing
Now, on its 10th birthday, the Kunstmuseum presents an extensive exhibition of works by the artist Olafur Eliasson, born 1967 in Copenhagen, who was previously shown here in the 1999 exhibition German Open: Contemporary Art in Germany. Since then, Eliasson's work has gained widespread international recognition. At the 50th Biennale di Venezia in 2003 an extensive installation by the artist filled the entire pavilion of his native country, and his recent installation The Weather Project in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern in London also met with international acclaim.

The exhibition consists of 13 mainly large-scale works. The scope of the exhibits ranges from the spotlight piece Infinity (1991) to new works which Eliasson developed for this exhibition, and incorporates all the major aspects of the theme of light in the artist's work, using spotlights, projections, mirrors, colour filters, colour effect filters, fog and optical lenses.
