Yayoi Kusama joins the dots at Famous Auction House

YayoiKusamaPillow

One thing Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama can’t be accused of is being boring. Having experienced hallucinations and severe obsessive thoughts since her childhood, her work can be directly linked to her experiences. Kusama’s pieces and installations have a strong hallucinatory feel as she covers spaces and items with an infinite amount of polka dots. Although some find her odd and even crazy, her pieces have secured her place among the biggest names in contemporary art. Like Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami, fashion designer Marc Jacobs is a big fan of Kusama’s work; culminating in a recent collaboration between the two.

So it won’t come as a surprise that some of these polka dotted items have also found their way onto Famous Auction House!
Get her awesome polka dotted Pumpkin Pillow!

Bidding starts at: € 150,-

Roger Ballen book signing at Reflex

Rogerballen

Photographer Roger Ballen’s work has had animals as his subject matter from the get go. Depicting village life of rural South Africa, Ballen’s photographs are raw and both documentary as well as artistic. His subjects are placed in carefully built decors, creating images that are almost painterly and sculptural. The images are exceedingly realistic and often unpleasant, but strangely recognisable. The use of animals only emphasizes this feeling.

On November 12th a new exhibition of Ballen’s animal photographs will be opened at Reflex Modern Art Gallery in an exhibition titled Animal Abstraction. The exhibition contains photographs that were taken by Ballen between 1998 and 2011.
To coincide with the exhibition Reflex Editions Amsterdam has published a beautiful limited edition book of his animal photography, under the same title as the exhibition, containing an introduction by Wim Pijbes, Director of the Rijksmuseum.

Roger Ballen will be present at the exhibition opening on November 12th (17:00-19:00h) and will sign some of his Animal Abstraction books.

Jenny Holzer wordplays at Famous Auction House

JennyHolzer

Although Jenny Holzer‘s work is characterized by it’s use of words and ideas in public spaces, such as enormous billboard advertisements, projections on buildings, street posters, stone benches, and LED signs she also works on a smaller scale on T-shirts, photographs and stickers, just to name a few. Initially she wrote all the texts she uses in her work, but since 1993 she began working with existing texts by well known authors. All the texts she uses convey a clear message, however, one that seems to advise the viewer to do things differently.

A set of 8 wooden postcards by Jenny Holzer is now on sale via Famous Auction House!

Bidding starts at €80,-
