Olafur Eliasson, not Frida Kahlo!
This week, Scott and I tried to get into the exhibit of the famous Mexican painter Frida Kahlo – on its last day at Martin-Gropius-Bau. When we joined the long line in the morning, the wait time turned out to be 8 hours. Our patience lasted about 15 minutes when we realized that the exhibit of the Icelandic-Danish large scale sculpture and public space artist Olafur Eliasson was also on its last day – and didn’t have a wait at all.
The Eliasson exhibit was beautiful, surprising and interactive – and, of course, much larger than what I captured on my iPhone (unfortunately my little point’n’shoot camera I’d been using for all my videos, broke this week).
