REVIEW 無限の網 草間弥生自伝

無限の網 草間弥生自伝

In 1957 encouraged by Georgia O’Keeffe artist Yayoi Kusama left Japan for New York City to become a star By the time she returned to her home country in 1973 she had established herself as a leader of New York’s avant garde movement known for creating happenings and public orgies to protest the Vietnam War and for the polka dots that had become a trademark of her work Her sculptures videos paintings and installations are to this day included in major international exhibitionsAvailable. If you re a fan of Yayoi Kusama contemporary art or just strong women in general this is a great book It has been translated from its original Japanese version so at times the writing is a bit rigid but it s straightforward which is enjoyable in its own way almost like a casual conversation I ve seen a few people on here complain about he self promotion and bragging in the book which certainly exists she has moments where she rattles off one award she s won or praise she s received after another but I think it s well deserved and it personally was news to me how acclaimed she is Kusama has always been overshadowed in the art world by male contemporary artists who she has claimed in previous essays she s written have even ripped her off At the opening of the Claes oldenburg show where he premiered his soft sculpture calendar he allegedly saw her at the opening and said sorry yayoi because he blatantly appropriated her soft sculpture method and in turn became famous than her for it For all she has achieved she should be a household name to the public up there with Warhol and pollock yet she s still not So for me I enjoyed hearing about all her accomplishments even if it was a tad heavy on the bragging because I actually wasn t even aware she had such a prolific history I didn t learn about her in art school in any of my art history classes until I took an Asian art history class despite the fact that she s clearly an international art star for whatever reason the writing of history seems to be undermining her contributions She talks uite a bit in the book about her up and down relationship with Japan over the years which I really loved especially her descriptions of its natural beauty The book focuses mostly on growing up there her move to NY and the art she made in the 60 s then for the last few decades she jumps around a bit and it s uite sparse and unbalanced at times In the end I liked it for that reason though because she wrote it in a very natural and instinctual way only focusing on what she thought was the most important It all felt very personal conscious and unrehearsed A really special read

Yayoi Kusama ↠ 1 REVIEW

Aking her artistic voice heard Conveying the breadth and ambition of her own work Kusama also offers a dazzling snapshot of 1960s and 1970s New York City and her encounters with its artists she collaborates with Andy Warhol shares an apartment with Donald Judd and becomes romantically entangled with Joseph Cornell Replete with the sense of the sheer necessity within an artist to create Infinity Net is an energetic and juicy page turner that offers a glimpse into Kusama’s exhilarating wor. I have been fascinated with Yayoi Kusama and her art since visiting two of her mirrored rooms at the Mattress Factory a few years ago Such a remarkable woman and artist and this is a wonderful autobiography Yayoi writes beautifully openly unflinchingly about her life her art her mental illness her dreams and aspirations Anyone interested in Yayoi Kusama will enjoy this book and gain a broader understanding into both her life and her incredible amazing inspiring art

    I was introduced to Yayoi Kusama back in university where my obsessive works were subtly likened to Kusama's process with repetition The first time I truly paid attention to her was two or three years ago Occasionally having read up on her I bumped into one of her small pumpkins at an art fair It was green with black polka dots like growth d

    uestion what is the normal amount of times to cry while reading an autobiography because I think I may have exceeded that amount??This was incredible Incredible person incredible artist incredible message It reads less like an account of someone's life and like having a cool conversation with an older relative about their wild life in their 20s now that you're old enough to understand all the scandalizing stuff they did
