Look Now… See Forever – Yayoi Kusama

The Queensland Art Gallery showcased The Obliteration Room instillation by artist Yayoi Kusama.

Developed for crowd participation, Kusama created a domestic space with home objects like a couch, chairs, a table and even a piano painted stark white. It created the feel of a blank canvas.

Soon the walls and every other white surface was obliterated with vivacious colors and the whole exercise made for a stunning, fascinating work of art.
