Ikkan Art Gallery is pleased to present its fourth solo exhibition of the Japanese collective, teamLab. The spectacular work of the group, whose large-scale interactive digital installation was most recently unveiled at the inaugural National Gallery of Victoria’s Triennial in Melbourne, Australia, sees an inimitable blend of vibrancy and pensiveness around the complexities of nature and temporality.
"Continuous Life and Death at the Now of Eternity" is a 9-channel vertical tableau that illustrates the passing of time with the budding and blossoming of flowers till their withering ends, with different flowers blooming over the course of a year. The exhibition also features "Cold Life" and "Impermanent Life", both single-channel digital works rendered in 4K resolution, "Gold Waves", a 4-metre long vista of waves that unfolds unendingly, and "The Land of Peace and Bliss", a 6-channel panoramic view over a new capital city being built, with various characters' stories unfolding concurrently in this picture scroll. Also on view is "Message Pillar", a 4-metre tall virtual tree that allows you to send your well wishes and view other people’s messages via the eponymous smartphone app.
