More than just an Instagram opportunity, Olafur Eliasson’s In Real Life at the Tate Modern is a stunning exhibition that is so sensory and visually captivating, it feels like an exercise in mindfulness.
I could have spent hours wandering around the rooms despite the fact that the exhibition in itself was smaller than I had anticipated. From what I had heard through the grapevine before going, I think we happened to visit on a slightly quieter weekday. However it was still very busy and if crowds aren’t for you, then it is definitely worth taking into consideration.
Getting those much-anticipated photographs can also involve a bit of waiting around and good timing/luck.
Also, if you are aged 16 to 25, you can sign up for free to Tate Collective and get £5 tickets for the exhibition. All the more reason to go and get those excellent Insta shots.
Would I take my girlfriend here? Well, I went with her this time but I’m sure she would come back with me.
