Out on 11 October 2019, Numéro's art issue features a 16-page profile of the artist who will take over Place Vendôme during FIAC.
In collaboration with Victoria Miro, Ota Fine Arts and David Zwirner, FIAC 2019 presents a major public work conceived for the Place Vendôme by Yayoi Kusama. Installed near the Vendôme Column, Life of the Pumpkin Recites, All About the Biggest Love for the People, 2019, expands on several of the most recognisable motifs of Kusama’s visual language – the pumpkin, the polka dot and the inflatable – and is her largest inflatable sculpture to date.
