Artwork ‘Feelings are facts’

April 9, 2010

Feelings are facts is the result of a collaboration between the Danish-Iclandic artist Olafur Eliasson and Chinese architect Ma Yansong. Trough a combination of light, steam and differences in temperature they try to create an artificial, multi-sensory  surrounding. The viewers are invited to redefine their senses. Today is the official opening of the exhibition, in Ullens Centory of Contemporary Art in Beijng.

“The viewer enters a world of extra-sensorial perception whereby color, light and architecture enable him to re-evaluate his relationship with his surroundings. The dialogue between Olafur Eliasson and Ma Yansong has invented an inspirational synergy between nature and our current urban environment, allowing the viewer a new perceptual encounter with himself.” says UCCA Director, Jérôme Sans.
