The installation of Yayoi Kusama’s popular interactive children’s project has taken the work to a new scale, filling our Children’s Art Centre at GOMA. This space has been transformed into a series of domestic—style rooms, reminiscent of the average Australian home, filled with furniture and objects painted entirely white. This functions as a blank canvas that becomes ‘obliterated’ over the course of the exhibition through the application of brightly coloured dot stickers.
This series of images shows The obliteration room 2002 to present in its pristine state before the exhibition opened, along with the application of the very first dot stickers. You can also read more about Kusama and the exhibition.
