Join the colorful immersive experience of Infinity Mirror Room at Tate Modern

London – Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Room at the Tate Modern is an immersive journey into the depths of the infinite, an experience that transcends traditional notions of art and space. Having had the privilege of exploring this mesmerizing exhibition, I can attest to its transformative power and its ability to transport visitors into a realm of boundless wonder.

Upon entering the exhibition, visitors are immediately enveloped in a sense of awe and wonder. The Infinity Mirror Room is a dazzling display of mirrors, lights, and infinite reflections, creating the illusion of endless space stretching in all directions. Every surface seems to shimmer and pulsate with energy, inviting viewers to lose themselves in the infinite expanse.
One of the most striking aspects of Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Room is its ability to evoke a profound sense of introspection and contemplation. As visitors gaze into the seemingly endless reflections, they are confronted with their own image repeated infinitely, prompting reflections on the nature of self and existence. It’s a deeply meditative experience, one that encourages viewers to confront their place within the vastness of the cosmos.
The interplay of light and space within the Infinity Mirror Room is nothing short of magical. Kusama’s meticulous attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the installation, from the placement of the mirrors to the strategic positioning of the lights.

The result is a kaleidoscopic symphony of color and form, a visual feast for the senses that leaves a lasting impression.
Beyond its aesthetic beauty, Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Room also serves as a poignant commentary on the nature of infinity itself. By creating the illusion of infinite space within the confines of a finite room, Kusama challenges viewers to reconsider their preconceived notions of boundaries and limitations. In doing so, she invites us to embrace the infinite possibilities that lie both within and beyond our perception.
In conclusion, Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Room is a truly transformative experience that captivates the imagination and expands the mind. Through its mesmerizing visuals and thought-provoking concepts, it offers a glimpse into the infinite depths of the human spirit.

Prepare to be dazzled, inspired, and forever changed by the magic of the Infinity Mirror Room.
The exhibition ends on the 28th of April.

About Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese artist who is sometimes called ‘the princess of polka dots’. Although she makes lots of different types of art – paintings, sculptures, performances and installations – they have one thing in common, DOTS!

What’s with all the dots?
Yayoi Kusama tells the story of how when she was a little girl she had a hallucination that freaked her out. She was in a field of flowers when they all started talking to her! The heads of flowers were like dots that went on as far as she could see, and she felt as if she was disappearing or as she calls it ‘self-obliterating’ – into this field of endless dots. This weird experience influenced most of her later work.

By adding all-over marks and dots to her paintings, drawings, objects and clothes she feels as if she is making them (and herself) melt into, and become part of, the bigger universe. She said:

‘Our earth is only one polka dot among a million stars in the cosmos. Polka dots are a way to infinity. When we obliterate nature and our bodies with polka dots, we become part of the unity of our environment’.

How did she start?
Yayoi was born in Japan in 1929. She loved drawing and painting and although her parents didn’t want her to be an artist, she was determined. When her mum tore up her drawings, she made more. When she could not afford to buy art materials, she used mud and old sacks to make art. This is a drawing she made of her mum when she was 10-years-old.
