Every wall is a door.
Superblue Miami’s artwork offers visitors the unparalleled opportunity to be transported to a variety of new worlds in a single visit.
Located in the Allapattah area of Miami, across from the Ribell Museum, Superblue transforms the 50,000 square foot unused industrial building into a cultural resource for the South Florida community and visitors. According to the venue’s co-founder and director, Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst, “it was conceived for the presentation of large-scale works that immerse and envelop visitors as part of the art experience”.
The inaugural program is titled Every Wall is a Door and features works by:
- James Turrell, who engages visitors with the limits of human perception. On this occasion, his exhibition AKHU will show visitors the palpable experience of light itself.
- teamLab, which combines new projects in an all-encompassing experience. With Between Life and Non-Life it takes the audience on an exploration of the ambiguity between states of being (or not) alive, as well as the connections between humanity and the natural world.
Also making its world debut is Massless Cloud Between Sculpture and Life, where visitors can be transported to a world with giant floating clouds from floor to ceiling; the boundaries between floating sculpture, space and the body are ambiguous.
Life Survives by the Power of Life II shifts between three-dimensional representation and flat version.
In Universe of Water Particles, Transcending Boundaries the public will be surrounded by continuing digital water particles; “an ultra-subjective space”, explains teamLab.
A final installation will expose a timeless year reflected in flowers growing, germinating, wilting and decaying.
- Es Devlin presents Forest of Use, whose work begins as a film that takes as its starting point impressive visual symmetries between the structures within us that allow us to breathe: the bronchial trees that exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide within our lungs.
- DRIFT, the multidisciplinary studio founded by Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta presents Meadow, an upside-down poetic landscape that evokes the (im)permanence of nature through ever-changing mechanical flowers in perpetual bloom.
