Kusamatrix

Tokyo: Mori Art Museum, 2004. 1st Edition. Small quarto, publisher's stiff photo-illustrated paper wraps, original photo-illustrated dust jacket.

Catalog published in conjunction with an exhibition of work by Japanese multimedia artist Yayoi Kusama held at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo in 2004. Kusama gained a reputation as a Pop minimalist in 1960s New York for her Infinity Net paintings and Accumulation sculptures and collages; she further extended her conceptual experimentation to political happenings and performance, film and fashion design, and large-scale installations and environments. Designed specifically for the Mori Art Museum, Kusama’s "art-autobiographical web" consisted of her original 1960s installations - mirrored rooms, passageways, and large-scale balloons in her signature polka-dot pattern - along with previously unseen work incorporating video art and doll drawings and sculptures. This catalog comprises photos of the "Kusamatrix," portraits of Kusama, and essays by composer Sakamoto Ryuichi, novelist Machida Kou, and the exhibition's curators. Illustrated in color with some smaller plates in black-and-white; with chronology and bibliography. Text in English and Japanese. Lacking printed wraparound band. Fine in unclipped dust jacket.
