Olafur Eliasson: Take Your Time. Printed Matter
Like the sensory epiphanies that his artwork evokes, Olafur Eliassons latest publication, Take Your Time vol. 2: Printed Matter sheds new light on the relationship between an exhibition and publication; artwork and documentation.\n\nThe book was commissioned on the occasion of the exhibition Mediating Experience: Olafur Eliassons books. Realised by the artist and curator Luca Cerizza, the publication is less documentation of a specific exhibition and more an insight into the artists inspiration. Over 144 pages, Eliasson has painstakingly photographed, manipulated and re-presented his personal library including every book written about, and by, himself.\n\nWhile the book covers all of the artists major projects, its really an artwork in itself; an exercise in archiving, collecting and documenting. Equally, its a performative gesture from Eliasson that questions how an exhibition could ever be summarised by a single, authored document.
