Yayoi Kusama has been working out her obsession with polka dots and infinity over a decades long career. Suffering from hallucinations and residing in a Japanese psychiatric institution, she uses art as a way to communicate her visions. For her current retrospective at the Tate Modern she has created Filled with the Brilliance of Life, her largest infinity room yet. Made up of hundreds of lights and mirrors, it must be dazzling to see in person. It will be on display through June 5.
Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrored Room: Filled with the Brilliance of Life. Indeed it is, as the lights change hues, suspending the viewer in space. The retrospective show at Tate Modern, sponsored by Louis Vuitton, is a must-see (opening Feb 9)
Infinity Room by Yayoi Kusama. Kusama uses hundreds of LEDs to create what looks like an endless evening of multi-chromatic fireflies, or a galaxy full of Christmas lights, or a blizzard of glowing snow over a city of skyscrapers. As simple as the effect may be—just mirrors and lights—the photos alone are a hypnotic, ephemeral tease of infinity.
