Bulb Field

The most famous work of the 90-year-old Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is probably her yellow pumpkin with black dots that can be admired in various places in the world.
This pumpkin is also part of the exhibition of some of her iconic works in the Voorlinden Museum. But I will show you today one of the other exhibited works.

Yayoi Kusama, is one of the most important and high-profile artists of this time.
Kusama is called the princess of polka dots.
She says about it herself: “... a polka dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka dots become movement ... Polka dots are a way to infinity. "

In the work of Kusama that I show in this post, the dot is used 3-dimensionally in the form of a large number of shiny spheres with the size of a football.
Placed against each other in one of the halls of the museum, they form a shiny bulb field that must be closely monitored by the museum guards to prevent visitors from moving the bulbs. Children in particular are attracted by the balls to play with.
