Olafur Eliasson‘s first solo exhibit in Louisiana is opened. The central work in the exhibition, Riverbed (2014), which is made specifically for the museum, is based on the unique connection between nature, architecture and art that characterizes Louisiana. Three recent film works are presented in The Hall Gallery. The third station of the exhibition is Model room (2003), a key work in Eliasson’s production that is always adapted to the specific exhibition situation. Eliasson shows around 400 geometric models used in developing artworks.
Louisiana, Copenhagen. 20.08.2014 > 04.01.2015.
Mammoth by Lasse Bech Martinussen is a mix of portraiture, reportage and manipulated photos. The series’ intention is to consider USA as a giant on the verge of extinction, a Mammoth, and the sense of confusion that I experienced on my trip. The photos – which are different abstractions on this point of view – is inspired by the country’s financial and social crisis, by meeting people on my trip, from the landscape, of the opening scene from The Shining. The odd and unsetling nature of the photos is meant as a little visual testiment to the course America currently seems to be taking.
