Exhibit: Olafur Eliasson, Contact
The Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson organised his first major exhibit thanks to the Modern Art Museum of Paris in 2002. Since then, he has come a long way and is now presenting his work in the Fondation Louis Vuitton. It is on the ground floor of the building designed by Frank Gehry that Eliasson is playing with the natural light that fills the space through mirror effects. By displaying a sculpture with geometrical facets in the centre of the room, he thus creates a light ballet through the use of a detector that catches sunlight and redirects it according to the time of the day.

Open on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from Noon to 7pm, and on Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 8pm.
