It’s been a strange start to the New Year with us finding ourselves in another National lockdown. However, Yayoi Kusama has lightened our moods announcing that her famous Infinity Mirrored Room will be exhibited at London’s Tate Modern. You might not recognise her name, but her reflective room of lights is world-renowned.
Last year the Japanese artist released collaborative champagne bottles with Veuve Clicquot, but this has been her biggest ever installation. It will be displayed along with Chandelier of Grief, a smaller piece filled with rotating crystal chandeliers.
This isn’t the first time the iconic installation has featured at the Tate; it’s previously been shown as part of the museums 20th anniversary celebration last year. Kusama’s work features two mirrored rooms which act as an immersive experience for visitors. It was originally created for her 2012 retrospective at the Tate and produced as a visual and perceptual experience of her polka dot paintings.
The exhibition will be on display for a year from March 29th 2021 to March 27th 2022 and tickets are £10 for non-members.
