OLAFUR ELIASSON AND THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY
17 OCT 2019
Since the early 1990s, Olafur Eliasson has made works that use natural materials (for instance moss, lava, ice, water) or that represent natural phenomena and landscape features (rainbows, waterfalls). His concern with nature was developed through his extended experience of Iceland. In this talk, I will discuss how these long-held interests have lead him to make works in recent years that address the climate emergency: projects such as Ice watch and the recently updated 'Glacier series'. 
Mark Godfrey is Senior Curator, International Art at Tate Modern. He has curated shows there by Franz West, Roni Horn, Francis Alys, Alighiero Boetti, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke and Richard Hamilton. He has published essays on many other artists including Wolfgang Tillmans, Tacita Dean, Zoe Leonard, Laura Owens and Frances Stark. He is the curator of the Olafur Eliasson: In real life exhibition which runs until 5 January 2020.
