Yayoi Kusama: Mirrored Years

April 2, 2009

Museum of Contemporary Art call out: Have your furniture featured in an original art installation by Yayoi Kusama.

The Museum of Contemporary Art is calling out to Sydney-siders to loan or donate items of furniture and living room bric-a-brac, in order to become part of an original contemporary artwork installation by the prolific and internationally acclaimed artist, Yayoi Kusama. The furniture will be used by the MCA to recreate a famous artwork by Kusama called I’m here but nothing (2004).
The installation will be displayed for the duration of the 40-year retrospective, Yayoi Kusama: Mirrored Years. The major exhibition aggregates her definitive oeuvres of film, sculpture, installation work and painting, as well as her recent body of 50 new print works made over the last three years. Kusama’s creations all share a fixation with pattern and accumulation – reflecting her own obsessive tendencies and hallucinations. Showing attributes of feminism, minimalism, surrealism, pop art and abstract expressionism, the pieces are infused with autobiographical, psychological and sexual content.
