kusamaYayoi Kusama, Love is Calling 2013.

…Let me call out to and ask the birds flying about in the sky
I want to convey to them my feelings
Over many long years, with art as a weapon
I have treaded the path in search of love
During the days I have lived through keeping “despair”, “emptiness” and “loneliness” all to myself along the way
there were times when the fireworks of life “splendidly” adorned the sky
Dancing in the night sky in a myriad of colors, the fireworks sprinkled dust all over my body
I will never forget that exhilarating moment
Now I think is the time to dedicate my heart to you, my dearest…

– excerpt by Yayoi Kusama, Residing in a Castle of Shed Tears
which accompanies Kusama’s I Who Have Arrived in Heaven exhibition now on view at David Zwirner Gallery.

Accumulation is how the  stars and the earth don’t exist alone, but rather the entire universe is made of an accumulation of the stars.- Yayoi Kusama
