Artist Talk Refik Anadol

SOLD OUT - Meet the Artist, and join the Artist Talk with Refik Anadol in Sunday February 18! Refik Anadol is one of the most progressive exponents of digital art. With his multi-sensory installations, Anadol (1985) explores the symbiotic relationship between humans and machines. With the help of sophisticated technologies like artificial intelligence, data visualisation, and algorithms, Anadol is able to paint with data, and uses machines as a thinking brush. With his colourful and opulent digital compositions, he transports you to the highly advanced world of machines.

The exhibition Living Paintings: Nature offers an insight into the artist’s working methods and sources of inspiration and presents the compelling installation Linving Painting: Immersive Room. In the three-dimensional, kinetic, and architectural space you are surrounded by a visual spectacle, further intensified by light and sound.  The audiovisual elements stimulate your senses and give you a sense of being present in an environment that does not exist in reality. Apart from Immersive Room, twelve data paintings are shown, further emphasising the important role nature plays in Anadol’s work. For creating these paintings the artist uses millions of publicly available images and data concerning landscapes and natural phenomena and transforms these into undulating, hypnotising presentations.
