12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Culture and the Arts
Narcissus garden Inhotim

Narcissus garden Inhotim (2009) is a new version of the sculpture that Yayoi Kusama originally presented in 1966 to an unofficial participation of the artist at the 33rd Venice Biennale. At that time, Kusama installed clandestinely a lawn among the pavilions, 1,500 balls mirrored that were sold to passers-by for $ 2 each. The board housed between the spheres - "Your narcissism for sale" - revealed ironically her critical message to the art system and its repetition and commercialization systems.
