Yayoi Kusama’s popular installation Infinity Mirrored Room – Brilliance Of The Souls ( 2014 ) is set to permanently return to the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Nusantara (Museum MACAN) in West Jakarta, Indonesia starting March 26.
“Due to huge public demand, we will re-showcase this installation in a new area,” said Nina Hidayat, the museum’s head of communications, before adding that the installation would have a new permanent home in a bigger location where the flow of visitors can be managed more easily.
“Although this installation is part of Museum MACAN’s collection, we consulted with the Yayoi Kusama studio prior to setting a permanent area for Infinity Room.
“They provided us with suggestions on how to create the sensation of moving to another reality, an infinite reality, using a certain room layout,” she added.
The entrance fee also covers entry to two exhibition areas, namely Jeihan: Days in Cicadas, which displays portraits created by Indonesian painter and poet Jeihan Sukmantoro; and Malaysian artist Shooshie Sulaiman’s Main Getah/Rubberscape installation.
The museum is currently closed to the public for installation purposes. – The Jakarta Post/Asia News Network
