Synopsis: As articulated by art critic and poet Akira Tatehata in his accompanying catalogue essay, the genius that generates [Kusamas] fertile artistic world, a paean to life, is driven by obsessive thoughtsand her extraordinary and highly influential career encompasses works in various mediums that unfailingly conjure both microscopic and macroscopic universes at once. Kusamas critically acclaimed inaugural 2013 exhibition at David Zwirner in New York presented a selection of the artists large-scale square-format acrylic on canvas paintings. This vibrant publication printed with multiple inks at the highest quality to fully capture the dazzling glow of Kusamas colorful canvasesopens with a selection of these works, which anchored the gallery presentation. Kusamas practice recurrently integrates motifs that evoke the cosmic and the primordial, from the ethereal to earthly, and embodies the unique amalgamation of representational and non-representational subject matter. Also featured are stills of the video installation SONG OF A MANHATTAN SUICIDE ADDICT, as well as stunning panoramic views of the exhibitions two infinity rooms, including INFINITY MIRRORED ROOM THE SOULS OF MILLIONS OF LIGHT YEARS AWAY, which was hailed by The New York Times as encouraging the ultimate selfie. The other room, LOVE IS CALLING, stands out as among the artists most immersive environments to date: a darkened, mirrored room illuminated by inflatable, tentacle-like forms covered in her signature polka dots, extending from floor to ceiling and slowly shifting color. Concluding the publication, an original poem written by Kusama herself, After the Battle, I Want to Die at the End of the Universe, contextualizes her practice: Having always been distressed over how to live, she writes, I have kept carrying the banner for pursuit of art.
