Ryoji Ikeda: data.gram
October 14–November 12
TARO NASU is pleased to announce Ryoji Ikeda’s solo exhibition “data.gram.” In the summer of 2022, the artist garnered international attention for his large-scale solo exhibition at the Hirosaki Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan, and his large-scale LED works are currently on view at Okayama Castle as part of the Okayama Art Summit (through November 27, 2022). In the gallery, however, Ikeda, whose specialty is to present integrated compositions of auditory and visual images on a grand scale, shows a pluralistic microcosm of new works depicting the world surrounding human beings with a brand-new sense of scale. Included in the show are 13 new small-scale videos from the “data.gram” series, which builds on motifs surrounding quantum physics, genetic information, and the universe. Here, visitors will have the rare opportunity to appreciate the appeal of Ikeda’s smaller creations for their quality—contrastive yet equal in power to his larger installations.
