A multi-sensory exploration of light and sound.
The Vinyl Factory and Fact, in collaboration with Audemars Piguet Contemporary, present a new Ryoji Ikeda exhibition in 180 Studios, 180 The Strand opening this May.
The largest exhibition of the artist’s work ever staged, including numerous world premieres, RYOJI IKEDA invites viewers to immerse themselves in Ikeda’s dynamic digital universe. A subterranean exploration of sound and light, the show takes viewers on a sensory journey through 180 Studios’ labyrinthine spaces.
The 12 artworks include the world premiere of Ikeda’s data-verse trilogy – a towering, triple-screen immersive project commissioned by Audemars Piguet Contemporary, and a site-specific, synapse-splitting new iteration of test pattern.
The exhibition also features never-seen-before installations such as: point of no return, an intense audio-visualisation that creates a virtual experience akin to entering a black hole; spectra III, a tunnel of strobe lighting that made its premiere at the 2019 Venice Biennale; and A (continuum) – a sound installation comprising six colossal Meyer SB-1 speakers.
