About the Exhibition

The 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa will present a special exhibition of Ryoji Ikeda in conjunction with this year’s theme, “Art x New Technology.” Ryoji Ikeda is an internationally acclaimed artist and composer whose diverse range of activities include immersive concerts and installations based on meticulous research, as well as performing arts and public art. Since the early 2000s, Ikeda has been exploring forms of artistic expression that seek to perceive the world from new perspectives, by working with big data in the natural sciences in creative ways. At this exhibition, Ikeda presents the new installation data.gram [n°6], consisting of 23 video works, some of which have never been exhibited
before. “data.gram” is a new series that recomposes Ikeda’s large-scale audiovisual installation, the “data-verse” trilogy (2019-2020), from the ultramicroscopic world of invisible elementary particles to the ultramacroscopic world lying at the very end of the observable universe, in an attempt to explore the various scales found in the natural world. This new work will provide an opportunity to test our own perception and awareness of the harmony and chaos of the natural world.
