HERE, ANOTHER NIGHT COMES FROM TRILLIONS OF LIGHT YEARS AWAY: Eternal Infinity

《地球に愛がやってきた 宇宙物語をたずさえて》 LOVE ARRIVES AT THE EARTH CARRYING WITH IT A TALE OF THE COSMOS 2009年 ©YAYOI KUSAMA

Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Nets is a series of paintings that has neither beginning nor end, formed of pure repetitions of nets. First exhibited in 1959, the series was well-received for its unique representation amidst the movement of Abstract Expressionism in the New York art world. In gaining high acclaim, Kusama made a grand start to her career as an avant-garde artist in the US.
On this occasion, Yayoi Kusama Museum will present an exhibition consisting of early pieces from the Infinity Nets series, as well as photographs and documents related to the series’ production. By showcasing it together with her latest painting series My Eternal Soul, the exhibition will reveal the artistic trajectory of Kusama’s wide-ranging works, of infinite repetitions challenging to transcend space and eventually acquire eternal life. As part of the exhibition, a ladder installation work, which symbolizes Kusama’s longing for eternity, will be shown for the first time anywhere in the world. A stainless steel pumpkin sculpture with cosmic coloring, which evokes an infinite and unknown universe, will also be displayed for the first time in Japan. With such a diverse lineup of works, the exhibition will invite visitors to the world of Kusama’s creation, imbuing mystery and the potential of eternally infinite expansion.
