If you haven’t seen this enchanting, ethereal exhibition yet, here’s your chance.
Tate Modern has extended Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirror Room until June 2023, and the next drop of tickets goes on sale on March 17, 2022 at 1pm. So put an alarm in your phone.
The exhibition focuses on two of the Japanese artist‘s major installations.
Infinity Mirrored Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life, is one of Kasuma’s largest installations, originally created for her 2012 retrospective at Tate Modern.
It creates a fantastical sense of space using mirrored walls, a shallow pool of water and a constellation of tiny lights.
Chandelier of Grief, the artist’s second featured immersive installation, immerses the viewer in a seamless room of rotating chandeliers.
It feels slightly like entering the mirrored room at a fairground only less carny and more brilliant and beautiful.
These unmissable experiences explore Kusama’s interest in the idea of boundless space and infinite replication.
They also incorporate hallucinatory motifs which is a reoccurring theme in Kasuma’s work, stemming from the hallucinatory episodes she has experienced since childhood.
There’s also early documentation of her experimental performances and shows as well as a brand-new sculptural work that continues the theme of endless replication.
Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirror Rooms is on at Tate Modern until June 2023. Tickets for the next round of admissions go on sale at 1pm on March 17, 2022.
