Yayoi Kusama’s happening ‘Horseplay’ at Woodstock 1965\

 You can watch her first film, Kusama’s Self- Obliteration (1967), a collaboration with director Jud Yalkut in all its  glory on youtube. Horse imagery starts at 2.00 , dappled light, forest, figure and ground dissolve away.


Its so disappointing that after such gentle and beautiful work, to see Kusama’s current widow display for Louis Vuitton and garish painted flowers at the Frieze sculpture park. The idea remains but the spirit has gone.
