Visual artist Ryoji Ikeda, a key figure in the world of electronic music, is famed for his overpowering live performances and mind-expanding audiovisual work. Ikeda is compiling a spectacular presentation for Eye that will immerse visitors in images and sound.
In creating his minimalist and breathtaking art, Ikeda (born in Japan in 1966) draws on mathematical concepts, quantum mechanics, data, sound and light, transforming them into works of intangible power and beauty, often capturing the invisible structures and data that shape our lives.
With mathematical precision, he reduces sound and images to their essence in stunning installations that bombard viewers with visual data. From pixels to the universe, he brings together the very smallest and very biggest in his work.
Solo exhibitions and live performances by Ikeda have recently been held at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow and at Carriageworks in Sydney.
