A drawn novel about Yayoi Kusama, (b. 1929) – the Japanese loner in modern art. Original and wildly popular around the world - also with Louisiana's audience for, among other things, the life's work, I Uendelighenden (2015-16), which became one of the most visited exhibitions in the museum's history. In this book, illustrator Elisa Macellari follows Kusama's lifelong journey from Japan to New York - and back home again. A world star in modern art.
In 1960s America, Kusama is a symbol of free love and peace. She fights a constant battle with her mental health, but finds salvation in art. From his childhood in rural Japan, through radical events in 60s New York to the groundbreaking international installations, this vibrant graphic novel documents the incredible journey of a remarkable icon.
