From the very start of her career Yayoi Kusama posed for photographs amid her installations and sculptures. These photographs generated a lot of publicity and focused attention on Kusama as an eccentric artist. Each time she carefully directed the way she was portrayed. On occasions she reclined in her installations like a pin-up model; in other photographs she seems to disappear altogether. The patterns that fill the space continue on her body or on the fabric of her clothes. Kusama regularly exhibited in the Castellane Gallery in New York. She was a much sought-after artist in the Netherlands too. From 1962 onwards she exhibited at Galerie A in Amsterdam, at Galerie Delta and Galerie ’t Venster in Rotterdam and in the Orez gallery in The Hague.
