Your glacial expectation – Günther Vogt and Olafur Eliasson

Ebeltoft, 2012

The construction of the surrounding landscape of Kvadrat Headquarters in Ebeltoft is designed by architect Günther Vogt and artist Olafur Eliasson, who have been collaborating on the project since 2008.

The great permanent outdoor installation encompass five unique elliptical mirrors designed by Olafur Eliasson, resembling glacial basins, differing in form yet set in horizontal alignment and positioned amongst trees, shrubs and wildlife. The interplay of what is within and without; what is untamed wilderness and serene garden is also reflected in the conceptualisation of the landscape. On slight elevations in the broad meadows are small but dense gatherings of trees, clearly delineated in their oval form.

April through October we offer guided tours in Your glacial expectation.
