There’re great many balls inside a ball and another countless balls inside one of the great many balls..
Because of compulsive disorder, Kusama Yayoi expresses hallucination from inside of her to a space, and she is finally called ‘The queen of dots’
She seems to want us to see what she sees through her works. She spreads dot prints on the every ceiling, wall and floor, and it gives us an illusion of space. We feel like falling into a world make of dots.
Yayoi also creates an endless dot world by using a lot of mirrors and beams. It looks psychological representation of her inner world.
“I just wanted to pull out the white circles looked like millet that endlessly multiplying up the wall from my sketchbook.”
Her fancy art works become her more popular because the works are looked simply kinds of graphic design ones.
This room is for arts participation by visitors. All you do is decorating the room by using colorful dot stickers.
