Matthew Ritchie at White Cube

Matthew Ritchie’s Ghost Operator opened last week at White Cube and will run until June 28. The Season 3 artist’s enveloping installation transforms the entire gallery using an array of scale and media, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, projections, interactive components, and a floor covered in plastic tarot cards. The linchpin of Ghost Operator is The Green Language, a spectacular light-box painting of a quantum sky and sea that acts as an umbrella environment linking all the other elements. Ritchie’s work contends with chance, probability, the vastness of the universe and the human attempt to rationalize and process such infinite limits.
