What do you get if a white room is left to the hands of children who have hordes of colourful stickers with them? Have a look at the pictures and you will see how the room changes in its colour, subtlety, décor with children pasting stickers on every wall, flooring, ceilings etc. This room that you see in the pictures is an installation by artist and designer Yayoi Kusama who put it up in the Gallery of Art in Brisbane, Australia. The room is called The Obliteration Room and once you see it, you will for sure feel the same.
Starting with a stark white room, well furnished with table, sofas, piano, bookshelf, all in same white shade, Yayoi showed how children could with their imagination and creativity change the whole look. The serene white then suddenly got infused with various colours. Random signs, faces, pattern is what now adorns the room.
It is an amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art. This activity shows how a blank and white canvas can be drastically changed into something random, vivid and colourful simply by children themselves. You don’t need to learn art, don’t need to be big enough to understand symmetry because modern art is what rules the world of creativity now.
The room or rather the installation is a part of exhibition called the Look Now, See Forever that runs through march 123 and has been made for that by Yayoi. See for yourself and discover the innocence of childhood.
