Yayoi Kusama has announced that she will be returning to London with a major exhibition, two years after the success of the mirror filled yellow pumpkins rooms. Taking place across the Wharf Road galleries and waterside garden, the exhibition will feature new paintings, including works from the iconic My Eternal Soul series, painted bronze pumpkin and flower sculptures, and a large-scale Infinity Mirror Room, created for this presentation. Represented at the Victoria Miro since 1997, this will be Kusama’s twelfth, as she approaches her 90th birthday.
The Infinity Mirror Room, envelopes visitors inside a large mirrored room with paper lanterns covered with polka dot patterns, which are suspended from the ceiling. Conveying the illusion of being unmoored in endless space, Kusama’s new work is the latest example of her renowned immersive environments. It offers a sense of infinity through the interplay of the rhythmic patterns of colourful spots covering the black spherical lamps and the surrounding mirrors.
Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirror Room will run from October 3 to December 21 at London’s Victoria Miro.
