Your Rainbow Panorama, a work by artist Olafur Eliasson on the roof of the Danish art museum ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum is an intriguing project on the borderline of architecture and installation art. The world-famous Danish-Icelandic artist has created this permanent work consisting of a glazed circular walkway in the colours of the spectrum floating above the museum’s roof. Olafur Eliasson, born in Copenhagen, Denmark, lives and works in Berlin.
“Your Rainbow Panorama by Olafur Eliasson is a fantastic work. In fact the rainbow has landed in Aarhus and as you might know Olufur is one of the biggest artists in the world among the contemporary artists. In 2003 he made the big Sun for Tate Modern in London. In 2009 he gave the Waterfalls to NY and now he’s Rainbow Panorama has landed here in the top of the Aros art museum in Aarhus Denmark. It is quit amazing a huge artwork a dream come true and from up there on the rooftop you are able to overlook the city of Aarhus, the bay and down on the ground you can see this gig artwork. It is lit in the night time it is fantastic and you are even invited to walk into it. Walk into a rainbow that is really something special.”
