Yayoi Kusama—a Japanese artist who is prominently known for having lived in a psychiatric institution for the past four decades—has been obsessed with infinity and dots for her entire artistic career, which she states to attribute directly to her hallucinations. As an attempt to share her observations, encounters, etc, she has created installations that delve into her obsessed visions of dots and infinitely mirrored space.

Random Dance Rain Room

Dancers from Wayne McGregor | Random Dance will inhabit rAandom International’s acclaimed Rain Room installation in the Barbican’s Curve gallery, performing continuously evolving interventions in the Rain, with a score by contemporary composer Max Richter.

Performances will take place on Sunday 18  November, Sunday 2 December, Sunday 20 January and Sunday 24 February, 11 – 5pm. Audiences will be admitted on a first-come first-served basis from the queue. Admission is free. 

Please note, queues of two to three hours are to be expected.

Rain Room is the latest installation by digital-based contemporary art studio rAndom International. It is a 100square metre field of falling water for visitors to walk through and experience how it might feel to control the rain. On entering The Curve the visitor hears the sound of water and feels moisture in the air before discovering the thousands of falling droplets that respond to their presence and movement.

Gordon Matta-Clark - Conical Intersect (1975)

“A torqued, spiralling cut into two derelict seventeenth-century Paris buildings adjacent to the construction site of the Centre Pompidou. With this landmark work of ‘anarchitecture’, Matta-Clark opened up these venerable residences to light and air, and began a dialogue about the nature of urban development and the public role of art.”

Baptiste Debombourg - Aerial

Debombourg used numerous sheets of shattered laminate glass to mimic a frothy flood of water rushing into a room. Remarkably beautiful work. See much more by clicking on the thumbnails here.

Liesbet Bussche’s “Urban Jewellery”. I love this.

showslow:

London-based artist Zadok Ben David created this incredible installation using 12,000 cut steel botanical specimens modeled from old textbook illustrations, each embedded in a thin layer of sand. On first encountering the sprawling array of plants they appear completely black, thus the installation’s title: Blackfield. However when viewed from the opposite side, a field of black turns into a wall of color.
