Travelling exhibition Olafur Eliasson: Your Curious Journey is the first major solo exhibition in Southeast Asia dedicated to the work of Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson.

His large-scale immersive installations invite visitors to embark on a sensory exploration of the environment and their own perceptions, challenging them to interact with elemental materials such as light and water to enrich their experience.

To compensate for the distances that the exhibition will travel, Eliasson and his team have sought ways to reduce its carbon footprint, including through changes in installation practice, maintenance, packaging, energy consumption, and, especially, transport. Artworks were selected that are lightweight, already located in the region, or whose materials can be sourced locally in order to keep transport distances to a minimum.

Many of the artworks on view in the exhibition reflect Eliasson’s environmental concerns. The seven last days of glacial ice, 2024, for instance, presents the stages in a melting ice block that was found and scanned on a beach in Iceland, and The glacier melt series 1999/2019, a series of photographs taken by the artist in Iceland in 1999 and again from the same perspectives in 2019, shows the decimation of the country’s impressive glaciers over the past twenty years.

Date: 10 May – 22 Sep 2024
Time: 10am – 7pm
