Few collectives are provided with the opportunity to create permanent digital art installations. It’s a format of art that’s often disregarded for standard museum entries. However, that hasn’t been the case for TeamLab & their Tokyo-established digital art museum named Borderless. After inspiring awe of the beauty in thousands throughout Japan, TeamLab was allowed to create a permanent museum in Tokyo for their Kaleidoscopic-themed art. Over twelve months, their venues would become the most-visited art installation worldwide in 2018.
The popularity behind their digital museums prompted TeamLab to bring their artistic installations to other venues worldwide. This included Oil Tankers in Shanghai and Hot Springs in Japan. TeamLab has multiple exhibitions releasing for 2020/2021. Those are listed down below.
- SuperNature in Macao, Macao. (Permanent)
- Forest Fukuoka in Kyushu, Japan. (Permanent)
- A Forest Where Gods Live in Takeo Hot Springs, Kyushu. (July to November 2020)
- Resonating Life in the Acorn Forest at Musashino Woods Park, Saitama. (Permanent)
- Life Installation at Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Seoul. (Sept 2020 to March 2021).
TeamLab Arrives in The Netherlands
The Netherlands is TeamLab’s next location for a permanent digital art installation, which is slated to arrive in 2024. It’ll follow the SuperNature Exhibition in Macao that was released this year. Netherlands version will comprise of 3000 Square Metres that maintain vibrant & luminous digital art against a picture-esque forest. There’ll be a notable emphasis on the education of nature behind this installation, working as a museum art exhibition for the Netherlands.
Details regarding specific digital art behind used for the Netherlands TeamLab 2024 Exhibition are limited. This collective is working diligently on five installations seen in Asia, the primary region where TeamLab has become popular. Through the Netherlands, it’s believed that their digital art venues could reach new heights in Europe.
It’s known that TeamLab will explore the notion of spreading & expanding the beauty of nature through their SuperNature Exhibition in the Netherlands. This collective wants to alter the perception of visitors and make them understand that global ecosystems operate in a fragile balance over millennia. Through their digital art, there’ll be an emphasis on how those ecosystems can be destroyed without the conscious growth of humanity.
