Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything
Immerse yourself in light
Citi is proud to be the Presenting Partner of ‘Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything’, to be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) from 3 November 2016 to 5 March 2017.
One of Japan’s leading contemporary artists, Tatsuo Miyajima is known for his immersive and technologically-driven sculptures and installations. Central to his practice are numerical counters that count from 1 to 9 repeatedly using light-emitting diodes (LEDs), then go dark momentarily. For the artist, the continuous count down, along with the shift from light to dark, reflect the importance of time. Drawing inspiration from Buddhist philosophy, his work explores ideas of life, death and renewal.
This is the first major exhibition of Tatsuo Miyajima’s work to be shown in Australia and features key works from across the artist’s extensive career, from early prototypes created in the late eighties through to dramatic large-scale environments made up of hundreds of numerical counters.
The artist will also premiere his new installation ‘Arrow of Time (Unfinished Life)’, direct from its premiere as part of the Met Breuer’s inaugural exhibition, in New York. “It’s like a beautiful cosmic meteor shower,” says curator Rachel Kent.
