Japanese Artist Covers The Entire Apartment With Flowers And The Result Is Magical

Published 2 years ago

Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese artist and her breathtaking art pieces have been mesmerizing people for a while now. Recently, she created a new installation called ‘Flower Obsession’ at National Gallery of Victoria Triennial in Melbourne. Kusama invited visitors to apply red flower motifs on walls, furniture, ceilings or wherever they would like to. And the result is just incredible. If you’d visit the apartment now, you wouldn’t be able to tell that behind these flowers lies a very ordinary room. Entering this installation will let you understand what it’s truly like to be obsessed with flowers.

In a press release for the show, Kusama has explained why she chose these flowers, “One day, after gazing at a pattern of red flowers on the tablecloth, I looked up to see that the ceiling, the windows, and the columns seemed to be plastered with the same red floral pattern. I saw the entire room, my entire body, and the entire universe covered with red flowers, and in that instant, my soul was obliterated… This was not an illusion but reality itself.”

A while ago Kusama has made a similar installation called ‘The Obliteration room’  where she let people cover the entire room with colorful stickers, and the result was incredible, to say the least. Scroll down to see her mesmerizing art pieces yourself!
