Ryoji Ikeda @ Eye Filmmuseum

Visual Artist Ryoji Ikeda will exhibit his work at the Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam. Ikeda is a key figure in the world of electronic music and is famed for his overpowering live performances and audiovisual work. The Japan-born artist draws on mathematical concepts, quantum mechanics, data, sound and light. His installations tend to visually bombard the viewers with data.

Some aspects from the works he will exhibit are: a visualization of data from scientific studies of the human body and the astronomic universe, a black hole of information containing huge quantities of information, a tribute to the composition ‘4:33’ by John Cage, and the visualization of the endless space between 0 and 1.

Ikeda recently had solo exhibitions at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow and at Carriageworks in Sydney. Ryoji Ikeda won the Prix Ars Electronica Collide @ CERN in 2014.

The exhibition shows from 15 September until 2 December.

On November 23rd there is a live performance of ‘damatics’.
