Installation art is one of the miracles of the modern-day world. Thanks to the dramatic progress and substantial contribution of adroit artists, the contemporary art scene swims with an extensive number of transcendent art installations.
One can find pieces for every taste, from something completely static to more dynamic works.

If this idea appeals to you, here are three art installations that you should see by any means.
Top 3 most fascinating art installations of 2019–2020
3. Mirage house by Doug Aitken (2019)
A mirrored mirage house was a whole new experience for many fans of exotic installations. The American artist Doug Aitken constructed a mirror house in the mountains of Gstaad, Switzerland. The main peculiarity of this installation is that its inner and outer parts are entirely covered with mirrors reflecting the surroundings of the snow-clad peaks. Just wonderful!
2. Gross Domestic Product by Banksy (2019)
In 2019, the street art legend Banksy revealed his pop-art installation that became his first and only official store. However, you could not enter it. The showroom was only for display purposes. Those who wanted to buy some branded items could get them only online via the website.
1. Narcissus Garden by Yayoi Kusama (2020, ongoing)
Yayoi Kusama is a contemporary icon of installation art. She is most known for her installations titled Narcissus Garden, which first appeared in 1966. Today, this monumental art show is on view at the famous art gallery The Momentary in Arkansas. 900 mirrored pieces and Kusama’s talent are everything that you should know about this magnificent installation.
Unfortunately, many art installations have been canceled or postponed, so we hope that this trio has warmed your heart at least a little. Enjoy art wherever you are and whenever you can!
