Olafur Eliasson — «Life»
Olafur Eliasson on “Life” 2021 at the Fondation Beyeler
“Increasingly I have grown interested in efforts to consider life not from a human-centric perspective but from a broad, biocentric perspective. I’ve found myself turning nouns into verbs – when I go through my exhibition, I try to tree, for instance – in order to become aware of perspectives that go beyond what we humans can properly imagine.” – Olafur Eliasson
Olafur Eliasson introduces his exhibition “Life” at Fondation Beyeler. In this short film, Eliasson has used optical filters to mimic the perceptual apparatuses of other species, alluding to potential more-than-human perspectives of the exhibition and its surroundings.
