We’re suckers for exhibitions where the gallery space is in itself transformed, rather than just being decorated – and so must be Olafur Eliasson, who is, of course, a master of transforming space. His latest experiment is on view at the renowned Louisiana museum in Denmark, where he turned the central space into a natural landscape with a little river flowing through it.

Other transformation highlights come to mind: Elmgreen & Dragset’s Powerless Structures Fig. 111 with its warped floors and ceilings, or Florian Slotawa’s grand Bonn Ordnen, where he moved the (functioning) offices of the Bonner Kunstverein into the exhibition space and showed his works in the deserted offices.
