Olafur Eliasson - Symbiotic Seeing

Jan 17 - Mar 22 2020       Heimplatz 1
Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has created a large scale installation exclusively for this Zurich solo exhibition. It addresses a key issue of our age: the relationship and interplay between human and non-human actors on Earth.  In ‘Symbiotic Seeing’, Eliasson tackles themes such as coexistence and symbiosis and aims to bring about a fundamental shift of perspective. The exhibition invites us not only to reflect on climate change – as a consequence of human action – but also to comprehend the human being as part of a larger system. The socially and environmentally committed artist, who was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for Climate Action and the Sustainable Development Goals by the UN in September 2019, proposes an idea of the world based on coexistence and collaboration, rather than competition.  Eliasson’s art translates complex theoretical deliberations into spatial works that not only appeal to people rationally, but also touch them emotionally and move them physically.



Open 10:00 - 18:00, Wed, Thu 10:00 - 20:00. Closed Mon. Jan 17 2020 - Mar 22 2020
