Raster-Noton boss Carsten Nicolai will stage the European premiere of his unicolor installation at Brewer Street Car Park in central London this summer.
Nicolai’s new work stretches panoramic wavelengths of blue, red, green and grey to confront the viewer with a vast expanse of colour and sound. Developing his previous projects univrs/uniscope version (2010) and unidisplay (2012), the installation unfolds against a mirrored wall to create infinite bands of colour, an idea inspired by Goethe’s Theory Of Colour and the work of artists Josef Albers and Johannes Itten.
The installation will also mark a year of site-specific installations at The Vinyl Factory’s Brewer Street Car Park space, and bring Nicolai back into contact with long time collaborator Ryoji Ikeda, whose installation Supersymmetry opens at the space in April. Influenced in equal measure by data, mathematic codes and random or self-organising structures, the pair have spent the last 15 years researching the potential of digital technologies in audio-visual art.
Carsten Nicolai’s unicolor will run from June 23 to August 2 at The Vinyl Factory’s space at Brewer Street Car Park, Brewer Street, London W1F 0LA. Admission is free and the space is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 12-6pm.
