Olafur Eliasson: Your black horizon, 2005

Your black horizon, a light installation by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, was commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary and inaugurated to great critical acclaim in June 2005 as an official project at the 51st Venice Biennale of Visual Arts. London-based architect David Adjaye was engaged to work in close collaboration with Eliasson and to conceive an environment in which art and architecture were from the outset considered as one, "an interlocking equation". Artist and architect shared the same, metaphorical, studio to engage, to respond to one another and to respond to the site specified for the pavilion.> >
