Ryoji Ikeda won international recognition by processing sounds, visual material, mathematical concepts and natural phenomena in installations, concerts and work-in-progress productions. After sold-out appearances at the Barbican, the Centre Pompidou, Kyoto Experiment and ZKM, the Japanese visual artists and composer comes to the OCC with two performers. In superposition (2012), Ryoji Ikeda achieves a fission of material, images, sounds and human behaviours whose energy and intensity lights up the audience.
