Photographer's Note

Moderna museet, Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm, is currently showing a large retrospective exhibition by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, born in 1929. She has been a central participant of all kinds of avant-garde art since the 1950's, mainly being connected with pop art and installations.

In Stockholm the exhibition starts already in the garden, where an installation called "Ascension of Polka Dots on the Trees" is shown. Every tree is dressed in these red "clothes" with white dots. The same installation has earlier been shown in other cities around the world. The dots are supposed to have appeared to Kusama in hallucinations when she was young and now they feature in almost everything she does.

Here is a larger version.

Another photo from the garden of Moderna museet can be seen in a workshop.
