This immersive solo presentation by art collective teamLab features five monitor works in various scales, each exploring the concept of what the collective has termed ultrasubjective space.

Pace is pleased to present a solo exhibition by art collective teamLab bringing a selection of monitor artworks to its East Hampton gallery. This immersive presentation features five monitor works in various scales, each exploring the concept of what teamLab has termed ultrasubjective space: the “flat” spatial theory prevalent in premodern East Asian artworks and picture scrolls, wherein the viewer does not hold a dominant perspective over the subject matter but is instead immersed as part of the world of the artwork.

Taking a hint from the spatial perception of premodern East Asian paintings, teamLab sought and constructed a logical structure of spatial recognition different from that of a lens, in which the screen does not become a boundary, and the viewpoint is not fixed. teamLab named this logical structure ultrasubjective space, in which the artwork space is perceived as though it exists in a real, three-dimensional space beyond the display surface. Visitors can feel that the artwork space is continuous with the surroundings in which they are physically occupying.

Highlights include the immersive works Universe of Fire Particles (2021), Flowers and People – A Whole Year per Hour (2020), and Life Survives by the Power of Life II (2020), which features vivid renderings of the four seasons in 8K resolution. Universe of Fire Particles also has an accompanying smartphone app allowing additional viewer interaction. teamLab: Life Survives by the Power of Life coincides with teamLab’s solo exhibition teamLab: Continuityat the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco. The collective also has new and recent projects currently on view in an all-encompassing experience at the Superblue experiential art center in Miami.
