DESCRIPTION

Feelings are facts will showcase the first collaboration between world-renowned Danish-Icelandic artist, Olafur Eliasson, and leading Chinese architect, Ma Yansong.  Eliasson and Ma will create for UCCA a unique experience through architecture and light.  Eliasson often plays with light, shadow, color and fog to create a specific environment for the viewer to enjoy the pure act of seeing, and to discover their surroundings through mechanically induced phenomena.  Ma’s architecture stands at the forefront of new experimentation in building structures, refashioning form in bold pursuits of perfection. Their collaboration is specifically designed for UCCA’s big hall inviting the Chinese audience to enter an endless space of fog, with color emanating from fluorescent tubes of red, green and blue. By moving about in the locations where the colors blend, viewers will endlessly creates their own color spectrums.
