Rie Nakajima is one of the most experimental artists working in the UK. Fusing sculpture and sound, her artistic practice is open to chance and the influence of others, raising important questions about the definition of art. Nakajima makes pieces often in direct response to architectural space, using a combination of kinetic devices, musical instruments and found objects. Ikon’s exhibition consists entirely of new work and includes a number of performances in collaboration with other artists.
“I work/communicate with architectural environments, and there is always something new to discover with sounds and objects. I would like to make the exhibition at Ikon flexible and open, with the potential to change and transform at any moment.”
