[*] "Contact is content at Seljalandsfoss".1996/ 2014. 2 chromogenic prints. 53 x 42 cm. Signed and editioned by Olafur Eliasson in ink on separate label. In original ivory linen clamshell box with folder with 2 photos inside and the accompanying artists's book of the same title. Edition 37/100 + 25 APs, Schirmer/Mosel edition 2008.

Over the years, Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has continually returned to Iceland to capture its landscape with his camera. This ambitious, ongoing venture has resulted in approximately eighty photo series to date, and a vast number of individual photographs showing glaciers, waterfalls, rivers, volcanoes, and caves. More than mere documents of the terrain, Eliasson’s vibrant images reflect on man's relationship to nature, the physical space in which we exist, and the body’s felt motion through space.
The prints in this work mirror each other. The artist suggests framing the two prints separately and hanging them one above the other, with the sources of the two waterfalls abutting. This creates an abstract, Rorschach-like composition of a waterfall spilling upwards as well as downwards, although which image is the ‘actual’, non-inverted depiction of Seljalandsfoss is indeterminable, creating a visual ambiguity and surreality. – In excellent condition.
