Listening to Art, by William Denton.
Volume twelve, number seven: Infinity Mirrored Room—Love Forever by Yayoi Kusama.
Hello, and welcome to Listening to Art. I’m William Denton.
The shortest recordings we have heard were made in 2018 at a touring exhibition of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms. It was a very popular show. Each room had a line-up of people waiting to enter, and they were only allowed in for thirty seconds at a time. This particular recording was first heard in volume three number ten. In the next issue we will listen again to the only work not by Kusama where viewers had to line up to see it.
This is an installation, made of wood, mirrors, metal and light bulbs, 210 cm wide by 250 cm high by 205 cm deep.
Now let’s listen to Infinity Mirrored Room—Love Forever by Yayoi Kusama, recorded at the Art Gallery of Ontario, in Toronto, on 20 April 2018.
That was Infinity Mirrored Room—Love Forever by Yayoi Kusama. I hope you enjoyed listening to it as much as I did.
