A mix of feature and review of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston's presentation of Yayoi Kusama:
Kusama’s infinity rooms remove the public’s ability to focus; she breaks through boundaries of space and time. A recent acquisition by the MFAH, Kusama’s 2009 installation Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity, places visitors on a platform surrounded by water as lights slowly ignite, reflecting in mirrors to expand the small room out into the universe, only to return to the void. Kusama’s focus here is on the struggle of everyday life: We overcome our daily life to reach today, yet must continue to overcome to reach tomorrow. We flash on, we go dark, and we blossom again.
