With an emphasis on light and perspective, installations by Danish artist Olafur Eliasson transform the plane that allows the viewer to experience the illusion of supernatural environment. The interstitial space in the Museum of Art in Seoul, features “Stairs of Gravity”. Composed of luminous spheres attached to the ceiling, all the space – bathed in yellow light, like the sun. Something otherworldly seen in lamps and mirrors on the ceiling, the visitor gets the impression of floating in space, among celestial bodies. Mirrors have essential place in the magic containing in the works of Eliasson. Traditionally, Mirrors defy the usual relation of man and space, recalling our tiny place in the vast universe.
