Denmark’s Louisiana Museum of Modern Art has opened the doors to Riverbed, a major site specific installation by Danish-Icelanding artist Olafur Eliasson. The museum describes Riverbed as a ‘major intervention’ in the museum’s administration of art in space, and they’re not joking. Running across the venue’s entire South Wing, Riverbed is exactly as it sounds. A vast collection of rock, pebble, water and moss that replicates, or perhaps just creates, a real river bed – an actual eco system that is intended to blur the lines between inside and outside, culture and nature.

Noticably bare of any display of art in a conventional sense, Riverbed is offers the viewer an empty landscape, while still within the confines of an indoor gallery setting. In this space, as in open nature, the viewer is encouraged to traverse and move through the stone landscape, free from agenda and expectation. In turn, Riverbed offers visitors a moment to breathe and an experience that may lend persepctive to everyday life.
