Dots Obsession (1997) by Yayoi Kusama.

Kusama -internationally known for her exquisite net and dot paintings as well as sculpture and performance work- has created this installation of her critically acclaimed work, Dots Obsession, specifically for the Rice Gallery.

The entire gallery was transformed into a vivid yellow, dreamlike space filled with Kusama’s signature polka dots and large anthropomorphic balloons of yellow latex also covered in dots.

A variation of this installation was first presented at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from October 1996 through June, 1997 and other in 2017 in Australia, at MONA Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania.
