Reality (January)

Transfers of red flowers are handed to January visitors entering Yayoi Kusama’s space. The writing is on the wall at the entrance: “I saw an entire room, my entire body, and the entire universe covered with red flowers… My soul was obliterated and I was restored, returned to infinity, to eternal time and absolute space. This was not illusion but reality itself.” Flowers, peeled off, are fixed to surfaces, leaving red outlines on the backing. But there is another reality: Conditions of Entry. A guard warned it isn’t allowed to take home used transfer backings left in the bins provided.
