"Art becomes the enemy of the artist, for it denies him the realization — the transcendence — he desires.
Silence in the sense as termination as a zone of meditation, preparation for spiritual ripening, an ordeal that ends in gaining the right to speak” SONTAG, Susan

Yayoi Kusama, Walking Piece, 1966.

Photos by Eikoh Hosoe.

‘Walking Piece’ (1966) is a series of colour photo slides on a projector. It documents Kusama’s feelings as an Asian female artist in the male-dominated New York art scene. The pictures have been clicked using fish eye lenses with the harsh city landscape as a foreboding backdrop. Kusama’s figure contrasts against the scenery, she’s wearing a bright floral patterned Kimono, and holding an umbrella decorated with flowers, thus making her look alienated from the city.
