Info

Ryoji Ikeda is a world-renowned Japanese composer and artist who is above all known for his audiovisual performances and installations.

Ikeda’s work has been greatly inspired by science and in 2014-2015 his residency at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) took place: https://arts.cern/artist/ryoji-ikeda. His residency at CERN resulted in the piece Supersymmetry, for which Ikeda received the prestigious Ars Electronica award (Collide@CERN 2014 Prix Ars Electronica). In 2015-2016, the exhibition project was also on display at the Kumu Art Museum (https://kumu.ekm.ee/en/syndmus/ryoji-ikeda-supersummeetria/).

In 2024, Ikeda will return to Estonia more powerfully than ever before! Ikeda’s solo exhibition, which has a direct connection with the research being conducted in Estonia and with Estonian music, will be open at the Estonian National Museum. Ikeda will create two new works especially for the Estonian National Museum: an audiovisual installation based on the scientific data of the Institute of Genomics, University of Tartu, and a sound installation created in collaboration with the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir. In addition, one artwork that already exists, the audiovisual installation data-verse (https://www.ryojiikeda.com/project/x_verse/), will be exhibited. It is extraordinary that one of the architects of the Estonian National Museum, Tsuyoshi Tane, will be responsible for the design of the exhibition.

Ryoji Ikeda’s solo exhibition is a part of the European Capital of Culture Tartu 2024 main programme.
