Nope, it’s not paint.
And this is what the room looked like before:
Installed for the Queensland Art Gallery, this incredible exhibit, known as The Obliteration Room was created by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama for her Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March. Beginning with a completely white room, Kusama invited children (and kids at heart!) to help “decorate” the space with colorful circle stickers for a period of two weeks.
As you can see from the pictures above, her artwork is often very tangible and necessarily autobiographical, and the fact that others help to create it is a very interesting note on the nature of art itself. Plus, it just looks like fun. I mean, who doesn’t like stickers?!!
