When news first got in that National Gallery Singapore will be exhibiting the brilliant 88-year-old avant garde artist, Yayoi Kusuma’s work, fans in this region went wild (so did we). It’s now June and it’s time to step into that infinity room where dreams come to life. Here’s a preview of what you can expect.

 

Notably 1 of Yayoi Kusama's most iconic installation is an infinity mirrored room that creates the illusion of endless space. Did you know that @Adele noticed this room from @KatyPerry's Instagram and thus, decided to perform her song 'When We Were Young' in an infinity mirrored room at @TheBroadMuseum? This footage was then used as a background for Adele’s performance at the 2016 Brit Awards. Catch 'Gleaming Lights of the Souls' at National Gallery Singapore from 9 June onwards.  For more information, head to the link in bio.  #SGLovesKusama Infinity Mirrored Room – Gleaming Lights of the Souls (2008) Collection of the Artist ©YAYOI KUSAMA, Courtesy of Ota Fine Arts, Tokyo/Singapore, Victoria Miro Gallery, London
