The most beautiful part of the Yayoi Kusama show at the Victoria Miro gallery was this slit of a staircase. Honestly, this show was so soulless and underwhelming that I realised getting sucked in by all the enticing IG posts I saw and articles I read about her life and work in other countries does not mean EVERY show of hers will be good. The paintings upstairs with their mitochondrial figures and the way she uses negative space was something powerful, but this particular show is so poorly curated and laid out that it just feels like they were trying to cash in on the Year of Yayoi. It’s free, which is the upside, because if I had had to pay for it I would have asked for my money back. It’s sold out, thanks to Instagram. It makes a few good social media pics. That’s all.
