This is a view from OLAFUR ELIASSON‘s new solo exhibition entitled Contact that opened on Monday in Paris. This immersive light installation is part of a constellation of eight works taking up heterogeneously the lower floor of Frank Gehry’s Fondation Louis Vuitton building.

The exhibition, just like the previous works of the Icelandic artist, plays with the perception and the spaces as well as the position of the subject within theses spaces through a series of installations made with simple and industrial materials that aim to ‘transport the visitors into the darkness of outer space thanks to a choreography of moving light and shadows’ according to the press release.

Contact, curated by SUZANNE PAGE with the support from LAURENCE BOSSE, HANS ULRICH OBRIST and CLAIRE STAEBLER, runs until 16 February 2015 at Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris.
