Kids are invited to enter the world of leading contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and ‘obliterate’ an Australian domestic space.

The obliteration room is opening Saturday October 14. Kids can enter the space for free and add colourful dot stickers to white furniture, objectives and surfaces allowing them to completely ‘obliterate’ the space.

The large-scale interactive installation has been displayed at over 21 venues in 15 countries and viewed by more than 5 million people worldwide.

The obliteration room is a dynamic artwork that transforms over time as hundreds of thousands of dots accumulate in the space. Not to mention, it is a lot of fun and you can take some awesome photos inside the installation.

The obliteration room revisits the popular interactive children’s project, which was originally developed by Yayoi Kusama for the Queensland Art Gallery’s fourth Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in 2002.

We aren’t going to let the kids have all the fun as adults can join in too. The haven crew can’t wait to head up to the gallery next weekend. It won’t be long until the obliteration room has become a vibrant sea of coloured dots.

The 2017 installation will be open until February 4 2018 and coincides with the ‘Yayoi Kusama: Life is the Heart of a Rainbow’ exhibition, which opens on November 4 and is also completely free!
