Yayoi Kusama : Infinity Mirror Room - Phalli's Field by Jo Applin( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost a half-century after Yayoi Kusama debuted her landmark installation 'Infinity Mirror Room - Phalli's Field' (1965) in New York, the work remains challenging and unclassifiable. Jo Applin looks at the installation in detail and places it in the context of subsequent art practice and theory as well as Kusama's own (as she called it) 'obsessional art'. This title is part of the 'One Work' book series, which focuses on the artworks that have significantly shaped the way we understand art and its history

Louis Vuitton city bags : a natural history by Jean-Claude Kaufmann( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and Italian and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is an unprecedented history of Louis Vuitton's women's bags, the most coveted line of accessories in women's fashion. At the heart of Louis Vuitton are its City Bags, a range of women's bags that dates back to the turn of the twentieth century. Featuring the trademark monograms of the house, the City Bag story began with the Steamer, a resort bag designed in 1901 to be packed inside a much larger steamer trunk. These bags have in a hundred years formally diversified into a dizzying array of handbags for every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman. Profoundly influential, City Bags are now known to millions by their descriptive names (Keepall, Bucket, Papillon, Alma, Locket, Noe, Speedy) and are still evolving into more fantastical forms. Lavishly illustrated with new and archival photography, historical graphics, landmark editorials, and ad campaigns, the volume traces the history of these specific bag families, and examines the earliest specimens and today's most sought-after collectibles, including Vuitton's collaborations with Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse, Richard Prince, Yayoi Kusama, and Rei Kawakubo and one-off projects by Zaha Hadid, Shigeru Ban, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Andrée Putman, and of course, Marc Jacobs. Louis Vuitton: City Bags is an ambitious volume on the creation and cultivation of a cultural phenomenon."--Publisher's website
The little mermaid by H. C Andersen( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in 3 languages and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale 'The Little Mermaid' (1839), a story about a girl from the sea who followed her dreams and suffered a disastrous fate on land, is known all over the world (particularly in its animated incarnation). But the familiar story is brought to new life in this gorgeous edition, a collaboration between the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and artist Yayoi Kusama. Paired with Hans Christian Andersen's original text, the densely patterned, undulating line drawings of Kusama's Love Forever series (2004-2007) conjure up storms in the roiling waves of the ocean, the Little Mermaid's vast underwater kingdom and her longing to live in the human world. Kusama's fertile, endlessly repeating forms are an ideal match for the poetic and disturbing universe evoked in the fairy tale; the result is a true collaboration. Kusama's drawings both illustrate and interpret Andersen's story, bringing it to terrifying life, and Andersen's words lend narrative content to Kusama's landscapes of unblinking eyes, curling tendrils and disembodied profiles

Infinity net : the autobiography of Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yayoi Kusama is one of the most significant contemporary artists at work today. This engaging autobiography tells the story of her life and extraordinary career in her own words, revealing her as a fascinating figure and maverick artist who channels her obsessive neuroses into an art that transcends cultural barriers. Kusama describes the decade she spent in New York, first as a poverty stricken artist and later as the doyenne of an alternative counter-cultural scene. She provides a frank and touching account of her relationships with key art-world figures, including Georgia O'Keeffe, Donald Judd and the reclusive Joseph Cornell, with whom Kusama forged a close bond. In candid terms she describes her childhood and the first appearance of the obsessive visions that have haunted her throughout her life. Returning to Japan in the early 1970s, Kusama checked herself into a psychiatric hospital in Tokyo where she resides to the present day, emerging to dedicate herself with seemingly endless vigour to her art and her writing

Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in 4 languages and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ceci est une monographie sur l'extraordinaire carrière de 40 ans du sculpteur et performeur japonais Yayoi Kusama, qui a récemment fait l'objet d'une grande rétrospective au Museum of Modern Art de New York, qui a tourné aux États-Unis et au Japon jusqu'en 1999. En janvier-mars 2000 Serpentine Gallery, Londres présentera une grande exposition personnelle consacrée à l'ouvre de Kusama. Reconnu internationalement pour ses sculptures douces et ses installations psychédéliques, Kusama explore des thèmes d'amour, d'infinité et d'obsession tout au long de son travail, de ses peintures en réseau commencées en 1959 à ses happenings d'amour pop dans les années 1960, en passant par des installations où la surface a été compulsivement couverte de polka-points, de miroirs ou de protubérances en forme de phallus. Visionnaire dont le travail est unique dans le panorama de l'art d'après-guerre, Yayoi Kusama est connue non seulement en tant qu'artiste mais aussi en tant que créatrice de mode, poète et romancière, tous documentés dans cette monographie complète
Infinity Net Meine Autobiografie by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1929 in Matsumoto/Japan in einer äußerst konservativen, monarchisch geprägten Umgebung geboren, in der altjapanische Etikette und patriarchale Formen Geltung haben, bezahlt Yayoi Kusama einen hohen Preis dafür, ihren Weg als Künstlerin gehen zu können. Sie bricht nach New York auf, ihre Eltern sagen sich von ihr los - während Jahren kennt sie nur Misserfolg, Hunger, Einsamkeit, Krankheit und starke psychische Leiden. Sie schafft ein Werk, das die Impulse der Hippie-Zeit in den 1960er Jahren auf anarchisch-vitale, punkig-witzige Weise aufnimmt und weiterentwickelt. Dann findet sie Hilfe. Donald Judd, und auch Joseph Cornell, mit dem sie eine langjährige Liebesbeziehung unterhält, unterstützen sie. Erfolg und Ruhm stellen sich ein. 1973 kehrt sie als Grande Dame der japanischen Kunst nach Tokio zurück. Dort richtet man ihr in einer Klinik ein Atelier ein, wo sie bis heute, mittlerweile 88-jährig, nach wie vor arbeitet. In ihrer Autobiografie schildert Kusama - die auf Japanisch auch zahlreiche Gedichtbände verfasst hat - all diese Etappen ihres Lebens auf stille, anmutige und immer sehr berührende Weise. So ist ein wertvolles Dokument entstanden, das durch die renommierte Berliner Übersetzerin Nora Bierich direkt aus dem Japanischen übertragen wurde. Versehen mit bewegenden, bislang unbekannten Fotos zum Leben von Yayoi Kusama - Abbildungen, welche das Kusama-Studio in Tokio exklusiv für die deutschsprachige Ausgabe beigesteuert hat, lädt der Band Seite für Seite dazu ein, einer großen Künstlerin auf ihrem radikalen, mutigen, manchmal beinahe schon heroischen Lebensweg zu folgen: Ein Mut- und Kraftspender für all jene, die immer noch an die Möglichkeiten von Kunst glauben!

Alice's adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since childhood, Kusama has been afflicted with a condition that makes her see spots, which means she sees the world in a surreal, almost hallucinogenic way that sits very well with the Wonderland of Alice
Yayoi Kusama by Yayoi Kusama( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La exposición muestra a Kusama como una artista irreductible y esencial en las nuevas narraciones globales del arte contemporáneo y refleja el rol crucial desempeñado por Kusama en el arte de posguerra desde una posición excéntrica: por un lado, se aproxima al pop, a los nuevos realismos y al feminismo en sus instalaciones y faceta pública; por otro, su empleo de la repetición, del monocromo y de la retícula tienen que ver a la vez con la obsesión y la enfermedad mental
