      Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life

      Olafur Eliasson returns to Tate Modern with this unmissable exhibition In Eliasson's captivating installations you become aware of your senses, people around you and the world beyond. Some artworks introduce natural phenomena such as rainbows to the gallery space. Others use reflections and shadows to play with the way we perceive and interact with the world. Many works result from the artist's research into complex geometry, motion patterns, and his interest in colour theory. All but one of the works have never been seen in the UK before. Within the exhibition will be an area which explores Eliasson's deep engagement with society and the environment. Discover what an artist's perspective can bring to issues of climate change, energy, migration as well as architecture. And once every other week you'll be able to communicate with people from Eliasson's 100-strong team in his Berlin studio via a live link. The kitchen team at Studio Olafur Eliasson will also create a special menu and programme of related events for Tate Modern's Terrace Bar, based on the organic, vegetarian and locally sourced food served in his Berlin studio. The exhibition will continue with a spectacular sculpture outside Tate Modern. Eliasson has a long relationship with Tate Modern. His glowing sun, The weather project, drew more than two million people to the Turbine Hall in 2003. More recently Ice Watch 2018 brought chunks of ice from Greenland to London. This exhibition will provide another unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages.
