For the third time, the world’s most popular artist aka Yayoi Kusama is taking over Philip Johnson’s Glass House to dress it up with some of her signature’s Polka dots.
Entitled “Dots Obsession – Alive, Seeking for Eternal Hope”, the installation will offer you the unique experience to simultaneously see the world through the eyes of both Philip Johnson and Yayoi Kusama.
The Glass House’s window walls and doors allow the artist to create a one-of-a-kind signature “infinity room.” The 1200 red polka dots directly engage the architecture of the Glass House, complementing its structure and aesthetics, breathing new life into the house.
“My desire is to measure and to make order of the infinite, unbounded universe from my own position within it, with polka dots. – In exploring this, the single dot is my own life, and I am a single particle amongst billions. – I work with the principal themes of infinity, self-image, and compulsive repetition in objects and forms, such as the steel spheres of Narcissus Garden and the mirrored walls I have created.” –Kusama
The installation is open until September 26th at The Glass House, 928 Ponus Ridge Rd, New Canaan, CT 06840, United States.
