Infinity Mirror Room - Phalli's Field (Floor Show)

Yayoi Kusama (in 1965 (1998))

The Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (Matsumoto 1929) has created an environment with dots, phalluses and endless reflections that suck in the viewer. Step into this room and you are immersed in the work. ‘Infinity Mirror Room – Phalli's Field (Floor Show)’ was the first of a series of mirrored rooms that Kusama began in 1965. The work was included in Kusama’s solo exhibition ‘Mirrored Years’ at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in the autumn of 2008.
