Tate Modern, London’s museum of the present, has put together another great set of exhibitions this year. From discovering your inner intuition in Kusama’s infinity rooms to showing the purest, rawest form of human movement, Tate continues to keep us on our toes, encouraging us to stay curious beings and explore!
This year, Tate Modern is offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some incredible works that haven’t yet been exposed to the eyes of the UK public. Breathtaking installations of Yayoi Kusama have made a name for themselves thanks to never-ending waves of Instagram posts. Now it’s our turn to take a stand in these mysterious immersive chambers – you won’t need any filters for this one!
11 May 2020 – 9 May 2021
Who wouldn’t want to see the creations of a legend of modern-day pop culture?
This contemporary Japanese artist (a remarkable woman, recognised by her iconic red bob) produces her works using repetitive dots, lights and mirrors. Her philosophy of the universe has trickled deep into her art, resulting in two remarkable installations already admired by many around the globe.
Infinity Mirrored Room is one of her largest installations, shown together with Chandelier of Grief where crystal chandeliers will alternate and give her representation of the universe, a place of no end!
The infinite reflections, mirrored illusions, light and shadows are a remarkable coping mechanism for her own thoughts, struggles and hallucinations. A truly moving experience, especially relatable to those in the world coping with obsessive thoughts and anxiety.
