▎Follow with Eliasson in creating your own light and shadow, color, time, and space in Palazzo Strozzi ▎

「這座非凡的文藝復興時期建築歷經數個世紀後仍然使我們敬佩,21世紀的今天,就讓我們不僅僅是作為參觀訪客,而是成為這檔展覽的聯合製作人 。」

“This extraordinary renaissance building has traveled through the centuries to great us here, now, in the twenty-first century – not as a mere host for art but as a co-producer of the exhibitions..”

— 奧拉佛・艾里亞森 Olafur Eliasson

What an exhibition needs most is the actual participation of the audience, along with different forms of feedback, to form an impressive aesthetic experience.


When science meets artistic aesthetics, it is conceivable that it could become a dialogue that cannot be stopped, nor needs to be demonstrated or dissected, because their combination will produce wonderful products beyond imagination. The mysterious vortex is slowly moving through the artist’s meticulous plan, one by one, being cleverly created and verified in front of your eyes.

冰島丹麥裔藝術家|奧拉佛・艾里亞森Olafur Eliasson,首次在義大利最大個展就選在佛羅倫斯當代藝術博物館-斯特羅齊宮Palazzo Strozzi舉辦,以雕塑和大型裝置藝術創造沈浸式體驗與空間聞名全世界,從千禧年代發跡至今在各國知名博物館皆可以看到他的展覽足跡,Netflix上熱門紀錄片《Abstract: The Art of Design》第二季第一集更是專門介紹這位「光之魔術師」。

Icelandic Danish-born artist | Olafur Eliasson, whose largest solo exhibition in Italy for the first time was held at the Palazzo Strozzi one of the important contemporary art museums in Florence, is famous for his sculpture and large-scale installation art creation immersion experience and space, and his footprints can be seen in well-known museums around the world since the millennium. Also, the first episode of the second season of the popular documentary “Abstract: The Art of Design” on Netflix is dedicated to this “Magician of Light”.

跨度於光線、形狀、色彩、時間與空間之間,Olafur Eliasson試圖將自然的元素貫穿於展覽場域,重新組構現在與過去的樣貌。

Spanning between light, shape, color, time, and space, Olafur Eliasson attempts to reconstruct the present and the past by weaving natural elements throughout the exhibition landscape.

藉由標題「在你的時間裡」(Nel tuo tempo) 可以很直接地理解到整個展覽是以「觀眾」作為核心,建立觀眾與裝置之間的對話,促使其成為作品的一部份。打破博物館/美術館與觀眾之間的規範與界限,一直是藝術家Eliasson創作歷程中主要的研究導向之一;不再以博物館為導向,不過度解釋說明作品,為其建立一個既定的思考方向,而是聚焦於觀眾本身,打造一種身歷其境的體驗裝置,豐富觀者的所有視覺感官。

Through the title of the exhibition “In your time” (Nel tuo tempo), we could directly understand that the entire exhibition is centered on the “audience”, establishing a dialogue between the audience and the installation, and promoting it to become part of the work. Breaking the norms and boundaries between museums and audiences has always been one of the main research directions in artist Eliasson’s creative process; no longer museum-oriented, not overly interpreting the works, but creating a predetermined thinking direction for it. Instead, focusing on the audience itself creates an immersive experience device that enriches all the visual senses of the viewer.


Walking into the 16th century, the historical corridor comes into the huge oval vortex floating in the air, simulating the movement of ocean waves, resembling a figurative sound wave, which is following your wandering steps, replacing the appearance of it passing through the light to reach your pupils.

Entering the main exhibition hall on the second floor, the window structure that is previously wrapped in the past, was deliberately included in the work by the artist this time. The light penetrated the glass window surface at that time, and the fine glass craft patterns between the filter panes, the bubble holes were wrapped into the glass structure, and the “traces of time” that could not be seen by the naked eye were once again covered with sunset-like colors to show the elegant and psychedelic posture of the aristocracy in the renaissance.

其中9號房間帶出藝術家最經典著名的作品《美》,透過水和聚光燈的元素製作出看似簡單的裝置,黑暗的房間,水絲噴霧迴盪著聚焦光線,折射進入觀眾的瞳孔喚醒了「彩虹」;就如同藝術家所說:「這完全是在兩個位置之間來回走動的問題:看見彩虹、沒看見彩虹。看到亦或者沒看到!」 沒有人可以看到同樣的彩虹形成,走進水霧中成為美的一部份。

After passing through the projection screen installation, the works in rooms 6, 7, 9, and 10 are the installations that best reflect the natural environment issues in the entire exhibition.

Among them, Room 9 brings out the artist’s most classic and famous work “Beauty”. Through the elements of water and spotlights, a seemingly simple installation is created. In the dark room, the water spray reverberates with the focused light, which is refracted into the pupils of the audience and awakens ” Rainbow”; as the artist puts it: “it is a matter of fluctuating back and forth between two positions: seeing the rainbow, not seeing the rainbow, seeing and not seeing.” No one can see the same rainbow formation, walking into the mist of water and becoming part of beauty.

The essence of art originates from everyday life, and inextricable relationship between science and nature has shown their complementary roles in many fields, while there are still phenomena that cannot be explained and demonstrated.


Artificial lighting installations and various media: color, water vapor, space, mirrors, with the progress of outdoor daylight, changes in the surrounding environment affect everyone’s participation experience, fully immersed in the installation situation, resulting in a dialogue structure between perspective and time points.

Our understanding of artistic creation depends on the knowledge content of the individual and the fermentation between life experiences. When facing contemporary art, most audiences are overly relying on reading the introduction, the existence of audio-guide, it is undeniable that in the field of conceptual art, a complete analysis and understanding of the motives and ideas of artistic creation is the core; however, the connection between the viewer and the work, that process of viewing experience, is the product of introspection after consumption, which could be video, photo, could be oral feedback, it could be an internal experience connection, or it could be a memory of the moment with companions.

《Olafur Eliasson : Nel tuo tempo》展覽近20件集結歷年重要裝置與2022新作,在斯特羅齊宮基金會的大力協助之下,實踐藝術家對共享體驗與互動裝置的堅持,以不同的展覽型態構思,主要聚焦在觀眾的感官體驗,試圖跨越空間界限和物理限制,將展覽場域打造為一切元素的匯集點。

The “Olafur Eliasson : Nel tuo tempo” exhibition brings together nearly 20 pieces of important installations over the years and news in 2022. With the strong assistance of the Fondazione palazzo strozzi, the practice artist’s insistence on shared experience and interactive installations is displayed in different exhibition types. The concept of state-of-the-art mainly focuses on the sensory experience of the audience, trying to transcend the spatial boundaries and physical limitations, and make the exhibition area a meeting point of all elements.
