Olafur Eliasson: Little Sun / Venice Architecture Biennale 2012

At the Venice Architecture Biennial 2012, the artist Olafur Eliasson showed his “Little Sun” solar lamp, that is also part of an installation presented in the main exhibition “Common Ground”. For the installation, Olafur Eliasson attached two Little Sun lamps to a fan. When the fan is on, the individual lights create a continuous ring of light.

The Little Sun lamp is a work of art / product of LittleSun GmbH, a company founded by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen. LittleSun aims to make sustainable light available anywhere. In this video the Managing Director of LittleSun, Felix Hallwachs, tells us more about the little solar lamp.

Olafur Eliasson: Innen Stadt Aussen / Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin

Innen Stadt Aussen” is the first solo exhibition by the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson in a Berlin institution. The exhibition’s central theme stems from Olafur Eliasson’s close relationship with Berlin, the city in which he has lived and worked for many years. It is also where he has set up his multi-faceted studio, combining the functions of research, production and teaching. Since 2009 Olafur Eliasson has held a chair at Berlin’s University of the Arts, where he heads the “Institute for Spatial Experiments“.

After numerous international surveys and projects among others in London, New York, Kanazawa and Sydney, this exhibition will profit from the fact that Berlin, as a site of constant change, is still open to experiments with architecture and urban structure. Through various new installations especially made for the exhibition the Martin-Gropius-Bau will develop an examination of Olafur Eliasson’s practice.

”Innen Stadt Aussen” concerns itself closely with the relationship between museum and city, architecture and landscape, as well as between space, body and time. The site-specific investigations within the museum are amplified and commented on through ephemeral projects in public space, thus linking the Martin-Gropius-Bau to various places within the city.
