Hallucination: that’s what Yayoi Kusama’s work is all about. The best-know living artist from Japan who influenced people like Andy Warhol, made me and my friends get more and more interested in her as we were entering the rooms and her universe that is so unique and somewhat very bizarre.
It’s a must visit if you’re in London right now. You’ll experience and feel things that goes from uncomforted dizziness to complete amazedness.
I’ll never forget the “Infinited Mirrored Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life” where you enter in a room of mirrors and its filled with these very small lamps that shines with different colors at different timing and makes you feel like you’re in an infinite world, that you can walk and look at yourself for your whole life never arriving at the end of anything. There’s a video where you can see what I’m talking about:
The exhibition is at Tate until the 5th of June. Run! 😀
The pictures where taken by Thais Caramico and Roberto Almeida.
