Olafur Eliasson’s art invites viewers to explore future forms of coexistence by welcoming multiple perspectives – human and non-human alike. For his solo show at Fondation Beyeler, the artist immerses the institution in a border-crossing investigation of our preconceptions of nature and culture.
This exclusive edition "Life" 2021, which includes exlusively selected day- and fluorescent colour has been released on the occasion of the exhibition “LIFE” and developed in close collaboration with the artist.
Each edition symbolizes a day of the year. 365 days, 365 copies - starting with January 1, ending with December 31. 365 days is the time in which the earth orbits the sun once. Our life needs the sunlight to stay alive. And when Life encounters with the light, it comes alive and unfolds its beauty not only by day, but also by night.
“Life, my artwork (April – July 2021), and the Fondation Beyeler are entangled with the surrounding park, the urban landscape, and the planet, and they come to life through everything and everyone that meet up in it. Ever since I began practising as an artist in the early 1990s, I have been interested in perception and in the cognitive and cultural conditions that shape it. Life comes to life through your active encounter with it, through your perception.”
