Thanks to Kate's wonderful Tate Modern membership card I had the luxury to avoid all queues and finally got to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibition – which is preeeetty mind-blowing. I guess as an artist you need a degree of obsession, but she really is way out there – not only because of 'the sex thing'* and all the dots and because she has been living in a mental hospital for the past 35 years... Her infinite creativity is just beautiful to behold. Maybe you've already been or seen her art somewhere else, but if not and you have the chance - it's well worth a visit.
The Tate member's café was also the perfect place to interview Kate about her favourite places in London – which will follow soon – with proper, not only oh-look-we-can-see-ourselves-in-the-window views. ♥ ♥ ♥
Yayoi Kusama exhibition, Tate Modern London, until 5th June 2012. (Sadly no photography allowed)
*which to me seems more a fertility theme, but then, sex and fertility can't really be seperated, can they?
