Olafur Eliasson’s exhibition, 24 January – 30 April 2018, continues the space’s programme of high-calibre exhibitions, which to date have included French artist Monique Frydman, Iranian artist Shirazeh Houshiary, Argentine artist Tomàs Saraceno, American artist Sheila Hicks, and British artist Edmund de Waal at Espace Muraille.
Objets définis par l’activité (Objects defined by activity) is organized around representative elements of Eliasson’s artistic vocabulary – notably his work with perception, light, water, and colour – and includes several new installations produced especially for the space. Initiated by Laurence Dreyfus, the exhibition was developed in close collaboration with the artist and his studio.
Founded by collector Caroline Freymond, Espace Muraille is a unique space dedicated to contemporary art, located in the heart of Geneva’s Old Town. In the words of Caroline Freymond, ‘Olafur Eliasson’s art combines thought and action to create connections between different perceptions of the world at both the individual and collective scale; his interventions always enable us to reflect on the space we inhabit in a more considered and engaged manner.’ Source and photos Courtesy of Olafur Eliasson.
