People are queuing up for up to two hours to spend just a minute in this art installation room.

We’ve all heard of seven minutes in heaven, but one 90-year-old Japanese artist promises art fans a 60-second experience worth queuing up for hours for.

Yayoi Kusama’s infinity mirror room is the piece de resistance in her ‘Every Day I Pray For Love’ exhibition, which is currently at New York’s David Zwirner gallery, and heading to Las Vegas next week.

She has previously done such installations before, including for her ‘Life is the Heart of the Rainbow’ exhibition in Singapore in 2017, and has become known for the popular (and highly-Instagrammable) installations.

A video shared by Bloomberg’s TicToc platform portrays the incredible experience, together with the exhibition’s other offerings, which include a floor installation made up of reflective pieces.

Despite the one-minute limit, most visitors who have visited the room are declaring on Twitter it is “worth the wait”.

Others offer a handy framework to dividing up your time in the room: 50 seconds to experience it and 10 seconds to take pictures.

But, unsurprisingly, some are saying they wished they had more time in the room.

The room has unsurprisingly proved a big hit on Instagram.

The Broad Museum, where the exhibition was previously housed, shared a proposal which took place in one of Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Rooms in 2013.
