Kusama Yayoi (b.1929) is considered to be one of the most im portant artists in contemporary art history. She is welcomed with open arms around the world and her art work is hot property on the art market. But w hat exactly is it about her art work that enthralls us so?

We do not have to search far to find an answer. We are rendered speechless\; w e simply\, and intuitively\, feel. Whoever you are\, wherever you come from \, whichever religion you turn to\, Kusama&rsquo\;s work allows us to trans cend these cultural and regional boundaries. Since being a young artist in her twenties\, she has developed her art using various materials and media.

Even in her eighties\, she does not stagnate. She still vigor ously strives to create new work. If her early work is considered more as a philosophical experiment\, her later work seems to project a clearer messa ge. In the end\, what she was pursuing was extending her artistic scope: se eking the boundary between reality and fiction\, life and death\, the finit e and infinity.

These artistic interests are deeply related to the paranoiac psychological state that she has suffered with throughout he r life. For that reason\, her work acts as a refuge from the insecurity\, s uppression\, and obsession that plague contemporary man as well as herself\ , suggesting a new direction towards a new art world.

The exhi bition featuring her representative and recent work is more meaningful in t erms of offering a space for people to experience and feel\, rather than si mply watch. We hope that many viewers could experience not only Kusama Yayo i&rsquo\;s art world\, but also feel at the center of the contemporary art scene.

This exhibition\, starting from Daeugu Art Museum\, is planned to tour Seoul Arts Center\, Shanghai\, and Taipei. The exhibition w ill offer a special opportunity to show Kusama Yayoi&rsquo\;s most recent w orks in one place that have been shown in world leading museums such as Tat e Modern in England\, Pompidou Center in Paris\, and Whitney Museum in New York.
