The latest “sound,” “light” and “data” installation by Ryoji Ikeda using cutting-edge digital technology
This is a solo exhibition by Ryoji Ikeda (1966- ), who is based in Paris and Kyoto. As Japan’s leading electronic music composer and artist, his work has attracted acclaim at art museums, theaters, art festivals and other events all over the world, where he has presented an array of work based on sensory stimulation, incorporating sound, visuals, materials, physical phenomena, mathematical notions and other elements. For Centre Pompidou, Ikeda has created two directly opposing, complementary installations. One is a room that is dark, the other a room that is light (clean). One uses what the artist calls a meta-composition, incorporating visual and audio data along with mathematical notions, in a disorienting and dizzying installation. The other is an audiovisual installation using giant speakers that gives viewers the experience of hearing some sort of performance work and walking around freely inside it. Four concerts are planned for the period of the exhibition.
