japan-born and germany-based artist riku ikegaya aims at rethinking art and architecture through his exhibition ‘controllable: uncontrollable’. mediating between art and media, ikegaya allows visitors to take one of the thousands of pieces perfectly placed in the exhibition space.

ikegaya’s installation consists of four thousand little white houses, each of which is marked and numbered. taking one of the pieces, the visitors disperse the artist’s work by sharing pictures of it on their social media channels.

‘I am aiming to reconsider art and architecture by letting the pieces out from the gallery for the interest of prolonging their appreciation of the exhibition space and by forming a datascape of the exhibition into a part of the artwork,’ explains the artist. furthermore, the exhibition is accompanied by the noise of infrastructure, which is played in the gallery, which is to stimulate the visitors to sense the daily routine.
