Tatsuo Miyajima is one of Japanís leading contemporary artists, known for his immersive and technologically-driven sculptures and installations. This Sydney-exclusive exhibition will be his first major survey exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere, encompassing key works from the beginnings of his career to the present.
Central to his practice are numerical counters that count from one to nine repeatedly using light-emitting diodes (LEDs), then go dark momentarily. For Miyajima, the cyclical repetition of numbers, along with the shift from light to dark, reflect the importance of time. He draws inspiration from Buddhist philosophy, with its exploration of mortality and human cycles of death and renewal.
Check the MCA website to purchase an Art Pass to the Sydney International Art Series, and see both 'Tatsuo Miyajima: Connect with Everything' and 'Nude: art from the Tate collection' at a 20% discount. There is no need to specify a date with your Art Pass, you can visit anytime the exhibitions are open.
