This book was designed for Museu de Arte Contemporânea Serralves, in Porto, Portugal, which accompanied the exhibition Y/our time is now by Olafur Eliasson at the Museum.
The book is organized by firstly present the exhibition views, then three texts — a preface by the director; an essay by Olafur Eliasson where the artist reveals how the climate change influences the artworks he presents at the exhibition; and a text that wonders around the works presented by Gonçalo M. Tavares; then a visual essay by Eliasson; and lastly, a list of works.
Between the texts, the reader is surprised with archival images of old sketches and works by the artist, that support and culminate in the exhibition at the Museum. The Portuguese text is placed on the top of the page and the English at the bottom. The cover is based on Human time is movement (winter), one of the three variations on the mathematical form known as the Clelia curve.
Simple, but intriguing. —Hilary Greenbaum
