The Active Apparatus and Liminal Landscapes
Young Projects Los Angeles is proud to present the first solo exhibition of Refik Anadol in the US. The show runs from May 16 through August 2nd 2013. Born in Istanbul Turkey, Anadol is working at the forefront of the digital arts, with a particular emphasis on augmented sculptures, projection mapping and live events. At the center of his practice is a deep-seated interest in the ephemeral nature of “space”, both as a concept and as a physical entity. But the notion of a physical space has changed dramatically over the past two decades, and for Anadol who cites the work of the new media theorist Lev Manovich, the next logical step after architecture is to realize how the “invisible space” of electronic data flow can be just as physical, substantial and even emotional, in the hands of artists.
