Ryoji Ikeda. Data-Verse
07 December 2019 00:00 - 29 March 2020 00:00
With the exhibition, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg is presenting—for the first time together—two new large-scale projections, which will be installed site-specifically in the museum space: data-verse 1 (currently on view at the Venice Biennale) and data-verse 2. With his works, Ryoji Ikeda strives to “capture the world down to the smallest detail” (R. I. 2008). His light and sound installations thus have their origins in mathematics, physics, and biology, as well as in musicology and philosophy. On the one hand, the surrounding architecture is decisive for his installations and is taken into account in the set-up of the works. On the other hand, visitors to the exhibition are invited to move about in the space in order to reevaluate their own perception and sound out the relationship between space and time.
