Olafur Eliasson in his studio in Berlin, Studio Olafur Eliasson

Olafur Eliasson at the Tate Modern, this is a bit of the rock star and his retinue whispering that arrive at the museum, this place of silence and contemplation. A commotion suddenly, a concentration of fans and microphones, a time that expands and all the looks that converge to a point. A priori, there is nothing spectacular in the goal. Bearded, salt-and-pepper, t-shirt and sneakers black, the Danish-icelandic artist, born on 5 February 1967 in Copenhagen, is exactly the same as always.

Modest in its surroundings, mezza voce in his speech, responsible and eager to be in his way, nothing never seems jarring or violent in this Scandinavian Berlin-born in the land lutheran. There is the wisdom of the temple – and its strict rules – in this star of contemporary art, which, for more than twenty years already, wants to replicate the miracles of nature at the heart of the museum.
