teamLab Art Museum: a ‘body immersive’ exhibition

teamLab Planets is a museum located in Toyoso,Tokyo where you can walk through water, and a garden where you become one with the flowers. There are a total of nine artworks, including four massive exhibition spaces and two gardens.

By immersing the entire body with other people in these massive body immersive artworks, the boundary between the body and the artwork dissolves, the boundaries between the self, others, and the world become continuous, and we explore a new relationship without boundaries between ourselves and the world.

Visitors enter the museum barefoot and become completely immersed with other visitors in the vast artwork spaces.

The museum is celebrating its third anniversary with an expansion: on July 2, the museum opened a new Garden Area, with two interactive garden art installations. Two gardens will open to the public: a garden where visitors can become one with the flowers, immersing themselves in over 13,000 live orchids that bloom in mid-air; and a moss garden filled with illuminated oval sculptures that shine and resonate when pushed by people or blown by the wind. The two new installations will be on display from now until the end of 2022.

teamLab (f. 2001) is an international art collective, an interdisciplinary group of various specialists such as artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians and architects whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, and the natural world.

teamLab aims to explore the relationship between the self and the world and new perceptions through art. In order to understand the world around them, people separate it into independent entities with perceived boundaries between them. teamLab seeks to transcend these boundaries in our perception of the world, of the relationship between the self and the world, and of the continuity of time. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity of life.

teamLab’s works are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; Asia Society Museum, New York; Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, Istanbul; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; and Amos Rex, Helsinki.
