Yayoi Kusama: Give Me Love documents the artist’s most recent exhibition at David Zwirner, New York, which marked the US debut of The Obliteration Room, an all-white interior that viewers were invited to cover with dot stickers of various sizes and colors. Taking The Obliteration Room as its centerpiece, this catalogue reveals, in vivid large-scale plates, the transformation of the space from a clean white interior to a stunningly saturated room, with ceilings, walls and furniture covered in multicolored stickers put there by viewers over the course of the exhibition. The catalogue also includes Kusama’s recent large-format paintings from the My Eternal Soul series and a selection of new, large Pumpkin sculptures, a form that Kusama has been exploring since the 1950s. Made of shiny stainless steel and featuring painted dots or dot-shaped perforations, these immersive works seem created on a human scale. Texts include "Hymn to Yayoi Kusama" by art critic and poet Akira Tatehata and a poem by the artist herself.
