Navegación situada 20.01/26.03 2022

In “Navegación situada”, I hope to bring our sense of place and of being present under loving scrutiny

Olafur EliassonNavegación situada is the Icelandic-Danish artist’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery.

Navegación situada explores how we navigate the complex world of today with a series of works that investigate our sense of presence and invite the viewer into an unexpected, open terrain.

Entering the exhibition space, visitors encounter Lava residue, 2021, an array of superimposed glass sheets arranged on a shelf made of driftwood that was collected from the shores of Iceland. The seven large watercolors from the series Situated absence navigator, 2021 and the Compass travellers series, 2022, directly addresses Eliasson’s long-standing fascination with navigational instruments.

The projection that completes the exhibition, The missing left brain, 2022, unfolds an ever-changing symphony of shadows and reflections in front of the viewer, produced through the chance alignments of rotating lenses and optical devices.
