Yayoi Kusama: The Obliteration Room

14 Oct 2017 – 4 Feb 2018
GOMA | Gallery 1.4 | Free

Children are invited to enter the world of leading contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and 'obliterate' an Australian domestic space by adding colourful dot stickers to white furniture, objects and surfaces in the large-scale interactive installation The obliteration room. The obliteration room is a dynamic artwork that transforms over time as hundreds of thousands of dots accumulate in the space.

The obliteration room revisits the popular interactive children's project developed by Yayoi Kusama for the Queensland Art Gallery's fourth Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in 2002. The 2017 installation coincides with the 'Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow' exhibition opening on 04 November 2017.
