It’s A Dot World


Visitors to the Children’s Art Centre at Queensland Art Gallery in Australia are handed coloured stickers as they enter one part of Yayoi Kusama’s current show and invited to ‘obliterate’ a previously pristine white room…


The Obliteration Room revisits a project Kusama created for the gallery’s Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in 2002, where she was one of three senior artists, along with Nam June Paik and Lee Ufan, to exhibit works.


The recreated all-white living room is just one part of Kusama’s exhibition Look Now, See Forever and, since opening in late November, the space has gradually filled with thousands of coloured dots. Kusuma has been producing interactive pieces since the 1960s, often using the human body in her performance pieces.
