Publisher's description: Yayoi Kusama: Give Me Love documents the artist's most recent exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, which marked the US debut of The Obliteration Room, an all-white interior that viewers were invited to cover with dot stickers of various sizes and colors. Taking The Obliteration Room as its centerpiece, this catalogue reveals, in vivid large-scale plates, the transformation of the space from a clean white interior to a stunningly saturated room, with ceilings, walls and furniture covered in multicolored stickers put there by viewers over the course of the exhibition. The catalogue also includes Kusama's recent large-format paintings from the My Eternal Soul series and a selection of new, large Pumpkin sculptures, a form that Kusama has been exploring since the 1950s. Made of shiny stainless steel and featuring painted dots or dot-shaped perforations, these immersive works seem created on a human scale. Texts include "Hymn to Yayoi Kusama" by art critic and poet Akira Tatehata and a poem by the artist herself. Yayoi Kusama was born in 1929 in Matsumoto, Japan. She was recently named the world's most popular artist by various news outlets, based on annual figures reported by The Art Newspaper for global museum attendance in 2014.
