’s art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. Eliasson strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world. Eliasson’s diverse works – in sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installations – have been exhibited widely throughout the world. Not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, his practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects and interventions in civic space.

" My creative practice draws on my desire to think about fragility, to reflect about an eager to learn and understand the human body, to comprehend limits, straights, weaknesses, and contents. The body of work exists in the territory of sculpture, installation and drawings. All the installations expect to lead us into reflections about materially, corporeality and impermanence. The plasticity of the materials chosen reflects the desire to create delicate, intricate, organics and fragile natures, it is used as a metaphor to speak about weakness, fractures, instability and ruins, resembling characteristics that one find in the human body. The drawings, extremely intricate and detailed, are studies for further installations. Common to all the works the saturation illustrate overloaded surfaces resulting in a negotiation between the work and the viewer due to the visual complexities. I´m interested in the ambiguity between the beautiful and the grotesque, the ephemeral and permanent. There is a sense of nostalgia as well an acceptance that an art work can have a time life as our selves." - Lucy Pereira

" I am a New Hampshire native, living young at the age of 21. I am currently attending the New Hampshire Institue of Art, majoring in Photography. A little about me: I am an avid reader, painter, photographer, skiier, and laugher. With my photography, I enjoy capturing special moments that mean the world to someone, and I love being able to show who someone is through a photograph." - Sarah Nieman
