Walking in my Mind
On Friday I visited the Hayward Gallery to see 'Walking in my mind'. My favourite works were Yoshitomo Nara's playhouse, Chiharu Shiota's 'After the dream' and the 'dots obsessions' by Yayoi Kusama, which included a room filled with inflatables which then opened to the roof garden filled with similar forms created in plastic.
Kusama's feeling of revolving 'in the infinity of endless time and the absoluteness of space,' and her view of herself as 'a dot lost among a million other dots' feels incredibly apt when viewing this with the rush-hour bustling of commuters and traffic in the distance.
