Visual artist Ryoji Ikeda, also a key figure in the world of electronic music, is famed for his overpowering live performances and mind-expanding audiovisual work. His spectacular presentation for Eye 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 that shape our lives. With mathematical precision, he reduces sound and images to their essence in stunning installations that bombard viewers with visual information.
Ikeda won the Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN in 2014. He has recently held solo exhibitions and live performances at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow, and Carriageworks in Sydney.
