Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with everything

November 3, 2016 - March 5, 2017

Tatsuo Miyajima, one of Japan’s most renowned contemporary artists, is known for his sculptures and room-scale installations incorporating light and numbers.

Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect With Everything encompasses his sculptural works, rooms and environments, and performance videos. Time and its passage are explored through the works and represented visually by multiple, small digital counting devices. Miyajima developed his first customised digital counters in the late 1980s, using light emitting diodes or LEDs. These ‘counter gadgets’ remain central to his art today, their red and green palette expanding in the mid-1990s to include blue, then white, as LED technology developed in and beyond Japan.

Objects Are Closer Than They Appear

June 30, 2017 - September 2, 2017

The exhibition re-iterates a well-known phrase used for safety warnings in automobile sectors in America. The rear-view mirrors carrying the phrase often makes the artistic minds wonder. The exhibition adopts the thought at its departure and captures the chord between sensibility and nearness. The works showcased in the exhibition explores the idea of nearness and it’s relation to the proximity. The phenomenological possibilities, the emotions and the imaginations explored in the exhibition quote on the probabilities of nearness as well as question our idea and approaches towards perception.

ACC grantee Tatsuo Miyajima is part of this group exhibition. He received an ACC fellowship in 1989 to travel to New York to observe contemporary art activities for six months.
