Ask anything

  • Diana asked

    Wanneer is het dan gemaakt? 1998?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hoi Diana, dit kunstwerk is voor het eerst uitgevoerd in 1965, maar deze versie is uit 1998. groeten, Sophie

  • Holly Beene asked

    Four years ago we traveled to Rotterdam just to see the Merry-Go-Round coatrack. My friend is coming this fall. Is the mechanism in storage for the next years?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Holly, I'm afraid neither the Merry-Go-Round coatrack nor the Infinity Mirror Room can be seen in the coming years. The museum building is being renovated and these works will both be in storage. Best, Xin

The Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (Matsumoto 1929) has created an environment with dots, phalluses and endless reflections that suck in the viewer. Step into this room and you are immersed in the work. ‘Infinity Mirror Room – Phalli's Field (Floor Show)’ was the first of a series of mirrored rooms that Kusama began in 1965. The work was included in Kusama’s solo exhibition ‘Mirrored Years’ at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in the autumn of 2008.
