Let me firstly say this is NOT a sponsored post – we simply stumbled across this when we were at Southbank and I thought you guys would love it! If you’re looking for a fun and free family day out – head to GOMA at Southbank. From Nov 4th – Feb 11th – Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s artwork is on display.
She’s is an international phenomenon with a career spanning more than 60 years. Although I’m an beginner when it comes to art appreciation, I enjoyed wondering through the rooms and looking at all the different forms of her artwork. I found it very interesting to watch her art evolve from her early works to her most famous pieces later in her career. There are a few different things that you can line up for including a room of mirrors and the infinity room – and although there is a little wait time involved, trust me, it’s well worth the line up.
Perhaps my favourite thing about the whole exhibition however is The obliteration room. Adults and children are invited to enter the world of Yayoi Kusama and ‘obliterate’ a domestic space by adding plenty of colourful stickers to white walls, furniture, objects and surfaces in the large-scale interactive room. The obliteration room is a dynamic artwork that transforms over time as the public add hundreds of thousands of dots to accumulate in the empty spaces. Out of all the rooms, this one is not to be missed!
