As a legend in contemporary artist, Yayoi Kusama has been acknowledged as one of the most important living artists in world. The exhibition of Yayoi Kusama X Botanic Garden of New York (NYBG), titled as Cosmic Nature, “reveals her lifelong fascination with the natural world, beginning with her childhood spent in the greenhouses and fields of her family’s seed nursery. Her artistic concepts of obliteration, infinity, and eternity are inspired by her intimate engagement with the colors, patterns, and life cycles of plants and flowers” (cited from the official website of NYBG). In this fashion photo project, we selected three most famous installations of Kusama, respectively named Ascension Garden of Polka Dots on the Trees (red), Dancing Pumpkin (yellow), and Narcissus Garden (white), as the photo props. We are aimed to extend Kusama’s concepts on our nature from art installations to the fashion.
