Yayoi Kusama exhibits the ‘Obliteration Room’ in Australia
As part of the Look now, See Forever exhibition at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, artist Yayoi Kusama created the Obliteration Room. Kusama created a domestic space, with couches, a piano, chairs and tables painted entirely white, creating a large blank canvas. Over the course of two weeks, visitors – especially young children – were given coloured stickers that they could paste anywhere they wanted. The bare white walls were soon obliterated by explosive and vibrant colours that resulted in a captivating work of art.
