Your Glacial Expectations by Günther Vogt and Olafur Eliasson

Ebeltoft, 2012

The landscape surrounding the Kvadrat Headquarters in Ebeltoft is designed by architect Günther Vogt and artist Olafur Eliasson. This addition is a permanent outdoor installation encompassing five unique elliptical mirrors designed by Olafur Eliasson.

The mirrors resemble glacial basins; they differ in form yet are set in horizontal alignment and positioned amongst trees, shrubs and wildlife. The interplay between an untamed wilderness and serene garden is explored in the conceptualisation of the surrounding landscape. On slight elevations in the broad meadows are small but dense gatherings of trees, clearly delineated in their oval form.
