Tatsuo Miyajima / Pile Up Life / Installation view, Lisson Gallery

Lisson Gallery presents an exhibition of new works by Japanese artist Tatsuo Miyajima from November 25th 2009 to January 16th 2010.

Since 1987, Tatsuo Miyajima has been constructing installations using LED digital counting devices. His works combine a performative aspect with architectonic structures, sometimes taking the shape of geometric patterns or organic shapes as well as encompassing vertical and horizontal surfaces.

The LED devices count progressively from 1 to 9 or backwards – Miyajima never employs 0 – establishing a rhythm as definitive as repetition itself and the inexorable passing of time.
