Advice to the Young from Olafur Eliasson
Artists should have confidence in the fact that making a drawing is changing the world. Danish-Icelandic artist, Olafur Eliasson, here presents his strong and personal advice to young artists. Making art is making the world, Eliasson continues, stressing his point that art should not be marginalized, as art is not fragile, but quite the opposite. Artists should be very sensitive to their surroundings and the context in which they find themselves. They should, however, also stay true to themselves and make sure that the strong market and its attractiveness does not commercialize them.
