Pumpkins and also mirrors (manifested as reflective spheres in one of these Snowglobes) are among Yayoi Kusama’s most well-known motifs. In the case of pumpkins, she employs the gourd as both an allegory and a form of self-portraiture in a variety of media. The mirrored spheres were central elements of Kusama’s site-specific Narcissus Garden installation, which debuted unofficially at the Venice Biennale in 1966 and was also presented by MoMA PS1 at Fort Tilden, New York for Rockaway! 2018. Yayoi Kusama’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.
