Être moderne : le MoMA à Paris Yayoi Kusama - Accumulation No. 1 - 1962
A woman artist in a men universe. Yayoi Kusama made hundreds of phallic bulges to make this armchair, thinking it was funny. But in real life people were shocked by her sexual humor. And indeed she got bitter criticism from men art critics of the '60's for it, ignoring the obvious phallic symbolism. Yayoi Kusama couldn't care less. She would do it with anything from dildos to macaroni. She said: "I make them and make them and then keep on making them, until I bury myself in tp] Polkhe process. I call this obliteration." Which might be what happens to your private bits if you sit on this armchair"
Invited to sit on this armchair, you may damage or abuse the phallus, which is intimidating for both sex.
Nobody dared to say : it's a phallic work resolutely feminist.
