Celebrating the opening of Azabudai Hills Gallery in Minato-ku, Tokyo, the exhibition “Olafur Eliasson: A harmonious cycle of interconnected nows” will be held from Friday, November 24 through Sunday, March 31, 2024.
Olafur Eliasson is an Icelandic-Danish artist. While creating genre-crossing installations, watercolor paintings, drawings, and sculptures, he is also known for his active engagement with social issues such as environmental concerns.
In this exhibition, he further explores the theme of “The Cycle of Interconnected Moments in Harmony,” which was created for the opening of Azabudai Hills and installed as public art in Mori JP Tower, with installations and three-dimensional works. The exhibition will feature 15 works on view for the first time in Japan, including a reworking of his 2010 large-scale installation “House of Moments,” which used light and water, and the world premiere of his installation “Air for Breathing.
The first collaboration in Japan with “Studio Olafur Eliasson Kitchen” (SOE Kitchen) in Berlin will also be held. At the café “The Kitchen,” which will be open during the Triennial, visitors will be able to taste a special menu featuring ingredients from the Tokyo area, which was jointly developed by a chef dispatched from Japan to SOE Kitchen.
