LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement If you’re wondering why the outside of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is covered in dots, take a peek inside because the much anticipated Infinity Mirrors exhibit has landed in Toronto.Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, 88, has had an obsession with dots. She’s still using them in her studio, now painting them primarily on canvases and sculptures.“For her the pocket dot is a symbol of life, of nature of connectivity,” said Adelina Vlas, the AGO’s associate curator of contemporary art. “Back in the 60s she used to cover herself and the idea was that with dots you obliterate yourself… you shed any sign of individuality and you become one.”Some of Kusama’s earlier work included phallic shapes covered in her famous polka dots.
