Yayoi Kusama

The Obliteration Room

7 May 2016 - 7 August 2016

The Obliteration Room 2002-present is a dynamic artwork by leading contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama that transforms over time through the active participation of visitors.
You are invited to enter the world of the artist and 'obliterate' an entirely white domestic space by adding colourful dot stickers to the furniture, objects and surfaces in this large-scale interactive installation.
The space gradually transforms through this interaction and the mass accumulation of coloured dots ultimately changes the white interior into an extraordinary blur of colours.
