Twenty-five years have already passed since Tatsuo Miyajima created his first work utilizing digital counters based on light-emitting diodes (LEDs). His works are now held in major art museums and corporate collections throughout the world, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Tate Modern, and the Fondation Cartier. He has also produced large-scale public works for entities such as the Denver Art Museum, the TV Asahi building in Roppongi Hills, and the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, and remains one of Japan’s best-known contemporary artists.
In this solo exhibition, Miyajima unveils a new work incorporating more evolved digital counters/gadgets based on a completely new concept. The revolutionary leap achieved by Tatsuo Miyajima’s LED digital counters provides a precious opportunity to experience the moment of the birth of a new form of art. We are delighted to invite you to share that experience.
