Olafur Eliasson: In His Time


Palazzo Strozzi / Florence / Art

The conceptual artist Olafur Eliasson is concerned with sense experience. In 2003, for his installation in the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, The Weather Project, he created a burning sun that bathed the space in orange. In 2016, he brought waterfalls, fog, and mirrors to the Palace of Versailles, and erected a large-scale waterfall in its grand canal. Now he’s bringing his spatial interventions to Florence’s fabled Palazzo Strozzi. Hung between the building’s Piano Nobile and its interior courtyard, Eliasson has constructed a labyrinth that plays with color, light, and water. This is the artist’s largest show in Italy to date. —E.C.
