Olafur Eliasson's captivating installations at Tate Modern.

The Tate Modern always has great and diverse exhibitions of the work of modern artists and for me this show is one of the best yet! Olafur Eliasson’s research into complex geometry, motion patterns, and his interest in colour theory. All but one of the works have never been seen in the UK before.

Some of you may recall ‘The Weather Project’ installation in the turbine hall in 2003/4 with a great glowing sun dominating the huge space. Or his light and water exhibition in Versailles a couple of years ago, so brace yourself for something different!

The current exhibition captures many other aspects of Eliasson’s developing interests and can be seen to be truly Architectural in many ways. The lobby is beautifully lit in a light yellow which sets the scene before you enter the show.

The first room has a giant collection of studio models and ideas made from card, steel, wire paper and glass all the product of an inventive and experimental mind the photographic records of the melting ice whale remind me of Andy Goldsworthy , the dramatic Icelandic landscapes showing glaciers and floodwaters are so powerful as challenges to the climate change deniers . The light, rain and mist experiences are truly extraordinary and certainly make you become aware of your senses and surroundings.

This exhibition comes highly recommended by Colwyn Foulkes team.

We guarantee It will provide another unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages!
