The title of Yayoi Kusama’s new exhibition explains it all: Infinity Mirror Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life. Using mirrors and LED lights which change color, the 82-year old Japanese artist explores the idea of infinite space.
“Since 1977 Kusama has lived voluntarily in a psychiatric institution, and much of her work has been marked with obsessiveness and a desire to escape from psychological trauma. In an attempt to share her experiences, she creates installations that immerse the viewer in her obsessively charged vision of endless dots and nets or infinitely mirrored space.” – Tate Modern
In another installation by the same artist at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, a blank canvas in the form of a room mimicking a household setting was created.
This interactive exhibition encouraged kids to stick multi-colored dots all over the room in any way they chose,
creating a space bursting with color.
