Life without colour is like… you know… black & white.

In December 2011, in an amazing and simple creation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (Australia), artist Yayoi Kusama generated a large domestic environment-  painting every wall, floor, table, chair, piano, light, ornament and home embellishment a bright white- effectively posing as a plain, oversized white canvas.


Over the sequence of two weeks, the museum’s youngest visitors were literally given THOUSANDS of coloured circle stickers and were welcomed to co-operate in the renovation of the area, turning the house into a luminously speckled explosion of colour.

The artwork, entitled The Obliteration Room, is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition. The project is running until March 2012, so if you’re ever hanging around the area, randomly of course, join in the fun.
