Free Event

Exhibition continues to Sat 2 November

Tolarno Galleries is open Tue—Fri 10am—5pm and Sat 1—5pm.

From their frenetic hive of a base in Tokyo, this sprawling assembly of thinkers and dreamers create immersive works of breathtaking imagination—sculptures of light whose radiance seems to pass through your very body.

Given how intensely teamLab works at the cutting edge of technology and futurism, it can be surprising to experience how grounded the collective's practice is in the natural world, and indeed how their goal is to transcend the boundaries between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world.

In this exhibition four screen works will take over Tolarno Galleries. The motion of hundreds of thousands of digital particles are simulated and then projected as cascades of shimmering luminescence, but to a viewer the effect is that of floating in a wave made of light. Rivers and sunbeams, a human hand applying ink to paper, the natural passing of time—these are the subjects that propel forward these pioneers of tomorrow.

The typical response to a teamLab experience is speechlessness, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with leading gallery Tolarno, in association with Martin Browne Contemporary, Sydney, to offer you the chance to lose your words—and perhaps to lose yourself—in the work of these visionaries.
