Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors

$ 55.00

This book presents world-renowned Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s most famous series, the Infinity Mirror Rooms, and charts its influence on the course of contemporary art for over 50 years.

Kusama’s rooms are filled with multicolored lights that reflect endlessly. Ranging from peep-show-like chambers to multimedia installations, each of Kusama’s kaleidoscopic environments offers the chance to step into an illusion of infinite space. This definitive publication traces these installations and reveals how, over the years, the works have come to symbolize different modalities, from Kusama’s “self-obliteration” in the Vietnam War era to her more harmonious aspirations in the present. By examining her early unsettling installations alongside her more recent atmospheres, this publication historicizes her pioneering work amid today’s renewed interest in experiential practices. Generously illustrated, this book invites readers to examine the series’ impact over the course of the artist’s career.
