Lot Essay

‘I work a lot with our perception of time, of duration, and of how the felt feeling of being present in a situation also determines how that situation unfolds. A situation or an event – or, for that matter, an artwork – consists as much in what we contribute emotionally and our attention and feeling of presence, as in the exterior conditions’
(O. Eliasson, quoted in C. Gilbert, ‘Q&A with artist Olafur Eliasson’, in Over Yonder. The Iceland Issue, no. 04, Winter 2015, p. 21).
