teamLab Plays With Perception in 'Massless Suns'

A new solo exhibition on view at Pace Seoul.

This past weekend, Seoul was the epicenter of the art world as the city played host to a number of international artists, galleries and fairs, including the longstanding KIAF art fair and the inaugural Frieze Seoul. Although both events concluded today, there is much to still be excited about when it comes to both the local art scene and the blue-chip galleries who have called Seoul home.

In particular, teamLab has unveiled a new solo exhibition of work at Pace Gallery’s art complex in the Hannam-dong neighborhood. Known for pushing the boundaries of nature and technology, the Japanese art collective will spotlight the never-before-seen interactive digital installation Massless Suns and Dark Spheres (2022). In both, visitors will be entranced by glowing spheres that react when visitors try to touch them. As each orb is made in a caseless design, visitors will not be able to sense their physicality, rendering each glowing moment an air of unpredictability and wonder.

teamLab will also feature monitor-based digital works, such as Waves of Light (2018) and Dissipative Figures – 1000 Birds (2022), along with Dissipative Figures – Human (2022) and Continuous Life and Death at the Now of Eternity II (2019) — the latter of which depicts flowers blooming in a perpetual state of life and death with the passing of days on a computer-generated program.

No teamLab exhibition is complete without an interactive element. Housed in the gallery’s outdoor sculpture courtyard, the art collective presents Resonating Microcosms – Solidified Light Color, Sunrise and Sunset — a series of ovoid bulbs that will change to 61 different solidified colors according to shifts in weather conditions, along with visitors’ interactions.

For those in the Seoul area, Massless Suns will be on view at Pace until October 29.
