This August, Louisiana will welcome a spectacular solo exhibition featuring Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. 

Famous for his large-scale installations, the main highlight of this exhibition will be a really long landscape that will take over most of the south wing of the museum. 

As it can be understood from his previous works such as the façade on the Harpa concert hall in Iceland and his installation Your Rainbow Panorama at Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Eliasson likes to enhance the audience’s experience by using reflections and elements like light and water and playing with human perception.

“My senses are my experiential guides – they generate my innermost awareness of time while generously giving depth to my surroundings," he explains on his own website (olafureliasson.net).

Known as the light and space artist, his work can be classified as post-modernist, although it is rooted in romanticism: the belief in seeking the ideal nature. 

While eliminating fundamental elements of nature in his work such as rain and making it a man-made scenario, Eliasson is searching for the sublime and he finds it in the nature. 
Riverbed will be a blend of contrasting notions such as outside and inside, nature and culture highlighted with the concept of vacancy.
