In her most personal book to date, Yayoi Kusama brings us into her private world through poetic recollections, giving insight into her creative process and the essential role language plays in her paintings, sculptures, and daily life. This book features an impressive overview of her poetry, which Kusama creates alongside her work in other mediums. Highlighting the importance of words to the artist, the book draws special attention to the captivating, poetic titles of her paintings. These visionary titles are a quintessential part of Kusama’s eye-catching artworks, but also hold their own as unique aphorisms and appealing statements of cosmic spirituality. The poetry also collected here touches on Kusama’s personal trials, her human ideals, and her heroic pursuit of art above all else. Centered around Kusama’s acclaimed 2019 exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, the book features new paintings, sculptures, and Infinity Mirror Rooms. It also includes photographs of Kusama over time, offering readers a unique visual timeline of this iconic artist. Hardcover, 304 pages.
