FOR THE LOVE OF PUMPK INS

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Culture Bazaar -

Queen of con­cep­tual pop art and fem­i­nist art, Yayoi Kusama, is ex­per­i­men­tal and an im­por­tant voice of the avant-garde. New paint­ings from her on­go­ing My Eter­nal Soul and In­fin­ity Nets se­ries have filled both of Vic­to­ria Miro Gallery’s May­fair and Wharf Road lo­ca­tions, over­flow­ing with Kusama’s undy­ing pre­oc­cu­pa­tions with polka dots, rep­e­ti­tion, and in­fin­ity net pat­terns. The sig­na­ture pump­kin mo­tif present in the form of mir­ror pol­ished sculp­tures, as well as the mir­rored rooms, have also re­turned to Lon­don for the first time since Kusama’s ma­jor ret­ro­spec­tive at Tate Mod­ern in 2012. This year, Vic­to­ria Miro presents All the Eter­nal Love I Have for the Pump­kins, Chan­de­lier of Grief, and Where the Lights in My Heart Go. Em­brace the ab­stract and voy­age through a uni­verse of mul­ti­ply­ing capri­cious re­flec­tions. Un­til July 30 at Vic­to­ria Miro Gallery, Lon­don. www.vic­to­ria-miro.com
