Art/ Yayoi Kusama

 
Last week I went to see Yayoi Kusama exhibition at the Tate Modern, her art encompasses an astonishing variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, film, performance and immersive installation. Kusama has lived voluntarily in a psychiatric institution, and much of her work has been marked with obsessiveness and a desire to escape from psychological trauma. In an attempt to share her experiences, she creates installations that immerse the viewer in her obsessively charged vision of endless dots and nets or infinitely mirrored space as you can see in photo 5 and 6 the visual effect reminded me the days I used to eat mushrooms with a treat ;) and she is polka dot maniac.
Yayoi Kusama is sort of the Japanese version of Tracey Emin, The exhibition will be open till June so you have plenty of time to go go go!

  7. I'd really like to see this exhibition. Massive shame that I live in the North! Sorry to hear about the sunglasses. I've sat on so many prized possessions that I could fill a small house with their shattered remnants!

  10. sorry to hear about your sunnies! don't worry, it happens :) I can't count how many times i have done the same in the past. Now I am extra careful with them! So jealous you got to go to the Yayoi Kusama exhibition. Been meaning to go for ages and tomorrow I will be in london but won't have time to go. Bummer. Thanks for posting this up, I will definitely try my best to go now before it ends xx

  11. This exhibition seems to be SO interesting, I've been interested in Japan for such a long time that each time I hear about some artist from there I would look, but I must say that I've never heard of this woman. Her process of creation is quite interesting AND disturbing at the same time but the result is totally impressive ! I wish I could be in London right now to be able to see this exhibition :'(.

    Thank you very much for your comment on the outfit post :). I absolutely wanted a contrast :). I actually pay attention to shoes when I first see someone, you know it is just like the unexpected element lol. When you see the shoes of someone you can tell if he is easy going, neat, classy, funky, funny, you are absolutely right it can tells a lot about someone's personality !

  13. My God, I wish I was there!! And, the sunnies tragedy, it happens to all of us. :) I broke two sunglasses (or maybe three including my boyfriend's). lol. Anyway, I'm your new style stalker now. Really can't wait for your new post.

    Hugs and kiss kiss,

  19. When I was in London i also get to the Tate for this exhivition and it was sooo amazing!! This is the kind of art that let you feel what you want to feel and doesn't impose you something, a difine meaning. And it's my favorite kind of art!!

  25. Tiene pinta de ser interesante la exposicion, de estas que no te dejan indiferente por lo 'raras' que llegan a ser...además viniendo de una mujer que ha estado viviendo en un psiquiatrico jaja pues este año quiero irme a vivir a Londres!! y empezar el año que viene diseño de moda alli, pero no creo que vaya antes de junio para ver la exposición...

    Por cierto, son de H&M, ahora que veo se me ha olvidado poner de dónde es cada item, voy a ello ahora...y me encanta el peinado que llevas!!!!! y las gafas que lamentablemente ya no puedes volver a ponerte...

    Un besito!!
