Finally made it to Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors at the Broad in downtown LA. It took me a few months to get tickets, I was so excited when I got there and then just like that it was over.
There are six infinity rooms and a small collection of her other works, but really everyone is there to experience the infinity rooms. The catch is that you are only allowed 30 seconds in each room, on your own or with the people you came with.
Kusama’s tangible creations exploring infinity are really extraordinary but before you can even get yourself oriented, the door opens and you’re ushered out. There isn’t nearly enough time to really let go and take in the magical, trippy world you’ve stepped into, let alone allow yourself to feel any emotions that begin to stir.
Isn’t that what art is all about? It transports you, moves you, makes you feel twitchy or curious or uncomfortable or excited? I don’t think extending to a minute per room would have made much difference to the museum but rather a significant one to the viewer.
The room pictured here, Phalli’s Field, was no. 3 in the circuit and by this time I was getting more adept. Although I am so grateful to have scored a ticket, I’d suggest getting 2-3 time slots if you can because only then you will be able to appreciate in full wonderment.
↠ Snow Day ↞ ❄️ So it snowed in Demark yesterday, really brings out the landscape 👌🏼😅 Kidding aside, this image was taken on my trip to Austria last winter with my buddy @mathiasskaarup , which was also the last time I had experienced snow before yesterday. Finally getting a bit into a Chistmassy mood ✨
