Louis Vuitton has gone polka dot mania with their latest artist collaboration with Yayoi Kusuma. Yayoi Kusama is Japanese born artist who stated painting in the 1950′s. She’s made a name with her exhibitions with prominent avant-garde artist like Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg and her installations at the Venice Biennale, MOMA in New York.
From 13 July – 8 September 2012, you can check out her exhibition and original design and collaborative pieces with Louis Vuitton at a pop-up store featuring her installation of ” Biomorphic Nerves” a series of polka dot sculptures that is her most iconic work. The pop-up stores are a world wide initiatives that covers major cities: New York, Singapore, Tokyo, Paris and London.
The collaborative pieces with Louis Vuitton includes an iphone app, (featured in Butterboom), two publications – a Monography and a Portfolio and a series of accessories and clothes featuring her signature polka dots. Louis Vuitton windows also feature Kusuma’s psychedelic design and brings a lot of fun to the store.
We certainly enjoyed the exhibition and felt like we had entered a mease effect with all the dots set against bright colours. Pop in when you are in Pacific Place, pop-up store is located near the taxi stand on Level 4, next to HSBC bank.
