Yayoi Kusama brings widely celebrated installation The Obliteration Room, new polka-dotted pumpkin sculptures and new paintings from her My Eternal Soul series to the David Zwirner gallery in New York with the exhibition Give Me Love. The artist’s latest exhibition marks the product of a renewed dedication to art making over the past years. The gallery rooms present three dimensional works, participatory pieces and painted canvasses that tower above exhibition-goers, embodying a continued exploration of form, subject matter, and space, while demonstrating a connection to her work from the past six decades.

Yayoi Kusama Give Me Love David Zwirner_12Give Me Love marks first time The Obliteration Room has been shown in the US. Varying from previous iterations of the work, which began as early as 2002, the installation at David Zwirner is built as a traditional, prefabricated American suburban house, rather than taking over one or several gallery rooms.

Within the interior, an all-white, domestic setting containing familiar household objects such as a kitchen counter, couch, and teapot, are all painted the same shade. As visitors enter inside the dwelling, they are handed a set of stickers, each a different brightly colored dot of a varying size.

The space gradually transforms as a result of the interaction and the mass accumulation of the dots ultimately changes the white interior until it becomes an unrecognizable blur of colours.
