Unidisplay by Carsten Nicolai

Minimal geometry and a black-and-white aesthetic make for an essential experience.

True to his research focusing on the intersection of image, sound and architecture, Carsten Nicolai recently found the perfect place for his art: a vast, empty hall in Milan’s Hangar Bicocca.

The German artist’s Unidisplay installation is a monumental 41m-long video projection that showcases his signature minimal aesthetics on a black background. Like in his other works, image and sound work together in creating an abstract landscape that surrounds visitors, trying to bring them closer to the infinite.

The piece will be on show until 2 December, with a special performance by the artist on 29 November.
