Last Friday afternoon Stuart and I went to see two of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms at the Tate Modern on London’s glitzy South Bank.
These immersive installations transported us into Kusama’s unique vision of endless reflections. The largest was “Infinity Mirrored Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life” and is one of Kusama’s largest installations to date and was made for her 2012 retrospective at Tate Modern. The other alongside was “Chandelier of Grief”, a room which creates the illusion of a boundless universe of rotating crystal chandeliers. They were breath-taking.
There was also a small presentation of photographs and moving image – some on display for the first time – provides historical context for the global phenomenon that Kusama’s mirrored rooms have become today.
