"I was enchanted by their charming and winsome form. What appealed to me most was the pumpkin's generous unpretentiousness." An affinity with nature has always been present in Yayoi Kusama's work, and the pumpkin has become a recurring motif. Displayed in the Vistoria Miro water garden, the sculptures were inspired by the Japanese artist's upbringing in a family that made its living cultivating plant seeds. Kusama has worked with a variety of media throughout her career, but her Bronze Pumpkins are the first time she's handled the material on such a large scale.
