Olafur Eliasson: In Real LifeThis summer, Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, whose 2003 weather project flooded the Turbine Hall with fake sunlight, returns to Tate Modern where he staged his popular installation. Marking the most comprehensive solo presentation of Eliasson's work, and his first major survey in the UK, Olafur Eliasson: In real life brings together over 30 of his works, spanning the last three decades. Each installation, or group of works, explores a theme that recurs in his work, whether it's space, motion or natural phenomena - as seen in Moss wall 1994, featuring lichen. Experiments with light and colour as well as engagement in social and environmental issues extend beyond the gallery walls onto the terrace outside Tate Modern and into the cafe where organic, vegetarian and ethically sourced food served at Studio Olafur Eliasson is on the special menu.

About Tate Modern

Located along the banks of the River Thames in the former Bankside Power Station, originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1947, the architect of Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern opened to great acclaim in 2000. Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors through its imposing doors. More about Tate Modern
