Description

'OLAFUR ELIASSON: BAROQUE BAROQUE' is an ambitious exhibition that brings together and reconnects some of Olafur Eliasson's most distinguished works from the collections of TBA21 and the Juan and Patricia Vergez Collection. The overview of artworks from two decades explores the affinities between his work and the extraordinary baroque setting of the Belvedere's Winter Palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy in Vienna. As an accompaniment to the exhibition, the catalogue Olafur Eliasson: Baroque Baroque examines some of the trajectories of thought raised by the encounter between Eliasson's artworks and their temporary baroque housing: in particular, how transformations of space, perception, and cognition reflect the realms of politics, technology, and the Anthropocene.
