Talking Art at Tate Modern

Tatsuo Miyajima

Interviewed by Marcus Verhagen

Japanese artist Tatsuo Miyajima rose to prominence in the late 1980s with his distinctive use of glowing LED numerical counters, with later works seeing these counters attached to moving devices or embedded in natural materials, such as piles of coal or submerged underwater. Miyajima describes his practice as addressing humanist ideas within a Buddhist philosophy: ‘keep changing, connect with everything, continue forever’. He has work in the Tate Collection, has twice exhibited in the Venice Biennale and presented a solo show at London’s Lisson Gallery earlier this year.
