Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors

A survey of Yayoi Kusama’s immersive and notoriously ’grammable infinity rooms makes its only Canadian stop in Toronto. Six kaleidoscopic installations summon viewers into mirrored rooms filled with polka dots, red-spotted tubers and electric pumpkins. Our sense of autonomy falters in the dense, endlessly reflected forests planted by Kusama’s imagination.

Similarly, in the participatory installation called The Obliteration Room (2002), visitors are invited to cover an all-white room with rainbow-coloured stickers, gradually engulfing the space, and themselves, in colour. After 88 years, Kusama and her delirious environments have connected with a new generation of art lovers and, for better or worse, their smartphones.
