The Obliteration Room by Yayoi Kusama
The Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama transformed a completely white room, including furniture, into a spectacle featuring her signature dots, helped by children who visited the exhibition over two weeks and placed brightly coloured stickers throughout the installation at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane. The interactive children’s project is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition. Kusama will also have a major exhibition at London’s Tate Modern from 9 February. Step inside her dotty world here…
It started with a white room … The Obliteration Room prior to being covered in stickers.
A child decorating one of the walls…
…and the furniture
…and don’t forget the cups
Which colours shall I choose?
Children covering the room in stickers… looks like the parents couldn’t help taking part too.
Is it starting to hurt your eyes?
Oops missed a bit… those piano keys look a bit white.
Ah that’s better… The Obliteration Room with just a dash of colour.
