In ALL, WORKS by Alex Pedersen

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson presents The parliament of possibilities currently on exhibition at the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, South Korea. Over his extensive and prestigious career Eliasson creates works that encompass his interests in nature, philosophy, science, and architecture.

“The exhibition the parliament of possibilities contains works with astronomical phenomena, geometry, light studies, nature elements and the artwork Meteorological Circles. The exhibited works were selected to offer viewers insight into Eliasson’s artistic practice, which reminds us that art exists in the present tense, continuously producing new meaning in the world.” – Studio Olafur Eliasson.

Alex Pedersen

Alex is a critical scholar and social scientist. During her degrees, Alex recognized a dearth of knowledge transfer between the academy and the general public. To address this gap, she extends her empirical research through multiple mediums including: publications, formal lectures, public speaking events, radio, theatre and photography. In diversifying access to her research, Alex honed a unique set of skills to plan, design and produce events for a wide variety of audiences. To date, she was responsible for several successful lecture series, community events and fundraisers across diverse settings. Most notably, Alex organized and implemented the 2015 Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship and was an advisor for the “Free Queen’s” Steering Committee (an initiative encouraging graduates to bring their work to the wider public). In addition, she has written numerous successful grant applications. An activist at heart, Alex advocates for critical thinking in and beyond academic institutions.
