Olafur Eliasson

From Innen Stadt Außen (Inner City Out)

"I don't think you need to be so result-oriented when you're trying to define the success of an art work. I think we can allow some unpredictability.... I am not worried whether people get it or not. I have great confidence in the visitors making some sense of it, something that will be relevant to them personally. And if some people go through it and it's just entertaining, then so what?" (Eliasson, in Schaer, 2010)

Eliasson, who has a studio lab in Berlin and his exhibition Innen Stadt Außen (Inner City Out) currently taking place at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin. His focus is on space and people's connection to the space, and experiments the border between the artists and their audience (Eliasson, 2009).
