BEIJING.- The Ullens Center for
Contemporary Art
(UCCA) presents the exhibition “Feelings are Facts”, from 3 April to 20
June
2010, fruit of the first collaboration between Olafur Eliasson, the
Danish-Icelandic artist, and Ma Yansong, one of the most prolific
Chinese
architects. Together the artists have created an installation specially
conceived for the of UCCA’s Big Hall, uniting architecture, light and
fog.
Eliasson is known for his exploration of human perception,
and he
often works with light, shadows, color, water, wind, or fog to create a
specific
environment in order to move us to think about our experience of our
surroundings – perceptions we usually take to be self-evident. Ma’s
architecture
stands at the forefront of new experimentation in building structures,
refashioning form in bold pursuits of perfection.
