Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson's first solo exhibition features an installation titled 'Riverbed.' The installation consists of an entire wing of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art being filled with rocks in an attempt to simulate natural landscape indoors.

Movement is not inhibited by the installation, as guests are able to roam freely over the rocky surface. Running through the museum is a narrow path that has been filled with water, creating a trickle that one might find in a dried river.

Meanwhile, the Danish museum's south wing houses a collection of Eliasson's art books. The library includes a book published specifically for the sake of exhibition, chronicling landscape photographs of Iceland from the 1980s to present day.
