“On the occasion of the first NGV Triennial, there is a special link with Japan through prolific Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama who has created a new artwork entitled Flower Obsession 2016–17.  The installation recreates a furnished living space that visitors are invited to cover using specially-designed 2-D and 3-D flower stickers, gradually covering all of the surfaces and ‘obliterating’ them.  This unique participatory work for all ages invites visitors to enter the world of Kusama and has been acquired for the NGV Collection.”

You are welcome to visit the Visual Art room any time and I look forward to making connections with all our families this term!
