YAYOI KUSAMA / "Narcissus Garden" and "Glass House"
Recently named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has a mesmerizing installation currently on the grounds of Philip Johnson's famed Connecticut residence, "Glass House". "Narcissus Garden" consists of 1,300 reflective steel balls set afloat on the property's newly restored pond. Moved and jostled by the pond's natural currents, the piece forms a kinetic sculpture that reflects both the surrounding forest and Johnson's "Pond Pavilion", built in 1962.
Kusama is one of several highly-regarded artists now on view as part of Robischon Gallery's "DECLARATION", an extensive group exhibition also including: Ruth Bernhard, Louise Bourgeois, Linda Fleming, Helen Frankenthaler, Ann Hamilton, Jae Ko, Joan Mitchell, Alice Neel, Shirin Neshat, Judy Pfaff, Lorna Simpson, Mickalene Thomas and Kara Walker - Up through June 11th.
