TeamLab in Europe

TeamLab is an interdisciplinary group of artists formed in 2001 in Tokyo. The group refers to themselves as “ultra-technologists,” and consists of artists, programmers, engineers, graphic designers, mathematicians and architects. 

The collective organizes permanent and temporary installations where visitors can have an interactive experience with the visual arts surrounding them. 

But if you don’t live in Asia, you may well have only experienced teamLab’s art via Instagram or at the collective’s (massively oversubscribed) temporary exhibitions. For Europeans, that’s about to change : in 2024, teamLab plans to open a permanent art space in the Netherlands.

Housed within Utrecht’s futuristic Wonderwoods green urban development – set to open next to the city’s Centraal station in 2023 – the new ‘Nowhere’ art space promises visitors an ‘awe-inspiring, ever-changing and immersive’ experience. TeamLab will bring together an array of artworks by some of the collective’s members, as well as an educational ‘Future Park’ area and an ‘Athletic Forest’, which will provide a ‘creative athletic space’ for locals.

As in other permanent exhibitions in Shanghai, Singapore and Taipei, visitors should expect all manner of interactive light sculptures – here set among more than 350 trees and 10,000 shrubs, which are being planted as part of the Wonderwoods development.

Here are some pictures from previous immersive experiences by TeamLab :
