  • Thura Sit Thway asked

    What are the actual dimensions/size of the room?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Thura, I'm not exactly sure about the room. But the dimensions of the piece are 311 cm (h) by 476 cm (w). You can reach out to me if you would like me to check the dimensions of the room for you.
    Best, Lisa

  • Pedro asked

    Is the renovation of the infinity mirror room finished? Can visitors experience it again?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Hi Pedro,

    The restoration of Kusama's Infinity Room has finished, though you won't be able to experience it at this point, as this work is not on view but stored in the depot.

    Best regards,

  • Donna asked

    Is it currently possible to visit the infinity mirror room?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Donna, at the moment Phalli's Field is restored in one of the restoration studio's in Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen. When you visit the depot you will be able to see people working at it. I am not sure when the restoration is finished and when the piece will be installed for experience by visitors again. Kind regards, Els

  • 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.
