Every so often, something does the rounds on Instagram in such a spam-like manner, that it genuinely makes you question whether all your followers are in cahoots about where they spend their weekends.

One such instance was when iconic Japanese artist Yayoi Kasuma opened one of her astounding infinity mirror rooms at London’s Victoria Miro back in 2016, and social media was flooded with selfies in front of what resembled miles of eerie venomous-looking pumpkins, or endless stretches of twinkling lights.

And now, the artist is returning to Victoria Miro for what will be her twelfth exhibition at the space, which will not only include a large-scale infinity mirror room (phones at the ready), but also new paintings, a painted bronze pumpkin and flower sculptures.

The new infinity room will envelop gallery-goers in a dreamland of polka dot paper lanterns, which via the mirror set-up, will give the appearance of going on forever.

Double tap.

Yayoi Kusuma’s exhibition will run at Victoria Miro from 3 October – 21 December
