Love is calling
Love is calling (2013) by Yayoi Kusama.
From tomorrow August 16th to March 17th 2019 at Tampa Museum of Art!!!
Tampa Museum of Art’s ‘Season of Love’ continues with Yayoi Kusama’s “Love is calling”, one of her paradigmatic Infinity Rooms.
Kusama’s Infinity Rooms offer immersive experiences where visitors walk through a mirrored room.
In this installation that’s a walk through color-changing, soft tentacles stretching up from the ground and down from the ceiling.
Polka dots adorn the tentacles, as is the artist’s style, and as you walk through the room you hear Kusama reciting (in Japanese) a love poem she wrote, Residing in a Castle of Shed Tears.
The poem is emblematic of themes that appear in her art: It includes her thoughts on love, life and death.
