Yayoi Kusama Exhibition “Infinity Mirrors” at AGO is an inedible experience!
The viewer dosn’t feel like a viewer but rather a participant in this exhibition. According to Kusama’s statement “Our earth is only one polka dot among a million stars in the cosmos”.
Guided by her vision and boundless creativity, this Japanese artist, born in 1929 has been breaking new ground in visual art more than 70 years. From her immersive Infinity Mirrors Rooms to her mesmerizing paintings and playful sculptures, Kusama invites us to participate an her explorations of time and space, inspiring us to think differently about our connections with the world and universe around us.
This is the first major exhibition to focus on Kusama’s iconic Infinity Rooms/ With these kaleidoscopic environments, which range from peep show-like chambers to multimedia installations, Kusama offers us the chance to experience the illusion of infinite space as she explores the question of what it means to be human, celebrates life and imagines its aftermath. The exhibition is also an opportunity to grasp the significance of Kusama’s work in the context of our world’s keen interest in the possibilities of virtual space.
