Olafur Eliasson Creates ‘Riverbed’ in Denmark’s Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

Presenting his first ever solo show, Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has just opened a series of works at Denmark’s Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Three site-specific works are housed in the museum, including Riverbed, which sits in the south wing. The work is made out of dirt and rock, and covers the entire surface of the space it occupies, starting with loose terrain and featuring a river that flows throughout. The artist explains:

What I’m interested in with my work at the louisiana isn’t really that you experience an object or an artwork. I am interested in how you connect this landscape to the rest of the world and ultimately, how you experience yourself within it.

Another work Model Room, sits in another wing of the gallery, as well as three video works in the museum’s main hall. The exhibition runs until January 4, 2015.
