Yayoi Kusama’s unique imagery spring from the recurring hallucinations that have haunted her since childhood. In her hallucinations the world appeared as covered by dots and repetitive shapes, like an infinite starry sky. Art became a method of giving form to these inner landscapes.
To share her experiences, Kusama creates works of art that invite visitors to lose themselves in the infinite nets, mirror rooms and thousands of polka dots with which she covers the world.
In a remarkable practice including surrealism, minimalism, pop, and psychedelia, Yayoi Kusama moves effortlessly between different media, east and west, art and popular culture, and between cultural identities.
Yayoi Kusama – In Infinity was organised by the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark, in association with Heine Onstad Kunstsenter, Norway, HAM – Helsinki Art Museum, Finland, and Moderna Museet/ArkDes, Sweden.
