Ryoji Ikeda

Work from his exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof

“Japanese composer and visual artist Ryoji Ikeda has conceived an exhibition for the Hamburger Bahnhof that, for the first time, compositionally unites the two symmetrical halls on the upper level of the museum’s east and west wings. The exhibition’s title db (short for decibel) refers to this symmetry while simultaneously indicating the complementary relationship between the two exhibition spaces. Ikeda has designed the white room and the black room as counterparts, not only physically (brightness, color), but also conceptually and perceptually. The project is a composition in which time and space are shaped through minimal use of sound, light and visual elements. The exhibition db is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Germany.” - Hamburger Bahnhof
