Infinity Mirrored Room - Brilliance of the Souls by Yayoi Kusuma (JP/A. Kurniawan Ulung)
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 starting March 26.
“Due to huge public demand, we will re-showcase this installation in a new area,” the museum’s head of communications, Nina Hidayat, told The Jakarta Post via a messaging app, 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,” said Nina.
The entrance tickets are available on-site or online at www.museummacan.org, with prices at Rp 50,000 (US$3.51) for adults; Rp 40,000 for students and senior citizens; and Rp 30,000 for children aged 3 to 12 years old.
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.
