London's Tate Modern just debuted a stunning new art installation by Yayoi Kusama that consists of hundreds of low-energy LED lights reflected by wall-to-wall mirrors. Dubbed the Infinity Mirror Room, the exhibit is a spectacular spacial void brimming with sparkling lights that dazzle and amaze visitors.
Yayoi Kusama‘s work often obsessively repeats motifs such as patterns of polka-dots – for example the Obliteration Room in Brisbane – or the reflected lights in her new piece entitled “Infinity Mirror Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life”. The Tate Modern‘s new retrospective recognizes these signature themes in the 82-year-old Japanese artist’s work. Having lived as a voluntary resident in a psychiatric hospital for almost 40 years, Kusama creates work that completely envelops the viewer. The exhibition will run through June 5, 2012.
