Yayoi Kusama Furniture

13th april 2005 - 1st may 2005

For the first time in Italy, an anthological exhibition of the Japanese artist’s furniture.
Yayoi Kusama, painter, sculptor, designer and performer, known and appreciated by collectors as a representative of the ’60s avant-garde movements, also stands out as a first-rate contemporary Japanese artist who is hard to pigeonhole as belonging to a particular school or movement: from Minimalism to Obsessivism, from Surrealism to Abstract Expressionism.
Considered an artist on the limits of visual experience for many years, the artist of the “Genteel Obsessions” and inspiration toward the Nothing, from her first Infinity Nets (presented in New York in the late ’50s) on she developed a highly personal and instantly recognisable language of her own.
Yayoi Kusama’s creations, from furniture to installations and clothing, are characterised by their ironic, colourful, delicate style going back to the themes that most affect the artist: fear of and fascination with oblivion “in the infinite universe”, seen as annihilation but also release from locked situations.
