In her most personal book to date, Yayoi Kusama brings us into her private world through poetic recollections, giving insight into her creative process and the essential role language plays in her work and daily life. With a new focus on Kusamas use of language, this book gives an impressive overview of her poetry, which the artist creates alongside her work in other media. Highlighting the importance of language to Kusama, the book draws special attention to the captivating poetic titles of her paintings, such as in I WOULD LIKE TO SHOW YOU THE INFINITE SPLENDOR OF STARDUST IN THE UNIVERSE and FIGURE OF THE MIDNIGHT DARKNESS OF THE UNIVERSE THAT I DEDICATED ALL MY HEART. These visionary titles are a quintessential part of Kusamas eye-catching artworks, but also hold their own as unique aphorisms and appealing statements of cosmic spirituality. The poetry collected here touches on Kusamas personal triumphs and trials, her human ideals, and her heroic pursuit of art and peace above all else. Centered around EVERY DAY I PRAY FOR LOVE, Kusamas acclaimed exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, in 2019, this book features more than 300 pages of new paintings, sculptures, and Infinity Mirrored Rooms. It also includes photographs of Kusama over time, offering a unique visual timeline of this iconic artist.

Recensioner i media

"For some experiences you just have to wait -- and the exhibitions of Yayoi Kusama, the 90-year-old Japanese mastermind of obsessively dotted paintings, hallucinatory pumpkins and sometimes blandly decorative installations, have become the art world's equivalent of Star Wars premieres."--Jason Farago "The New York Times" "Kusama reaches out to all of us, and she succeeds in making us love her creations."--Marianne Schaefer Trench "The Daily Beast" "Not many other...contemporary artists elicit such joy and excitement among such a diverse group of people."--David Alm "Forbes" "Queen of contemporary art"--Harry Seymour "AnOther" "Aside from the irresistible blue, orange, and green cover, Yayoi Kusama: Every Day I Pray for Love is a tender and captivating look into the artist's poetic world. Through an impressive collection of Kusama's poetry, this iconic tome highlights the importance of words to the artist, whose painting titles are as beguiling as the artworks they accompany."--Allison Schaller and Danielle Walsh "Vanity Fair"
