Description

Narcissus Garden is a signature work of contemporary art created by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Narcissus Garden was first presented in 1966, when Kusama staged an unofficial installation and performance at the 33rd Venice Biennale. The silver spheres, originally made from plastic, were installed on the lawn in front of the Italian Pavilion, reflecting the landscape of the exhibition grounds. Kusama herself stood among them, barefoot and dressed in a gold kimono, alongside yard signs inscribed with the words “Narcissus Garden, Kusama” and “Your Narcissism for Sale.”

The installation is site-specific and made up of approximately 1,400 stainless steel spheres carefully arranged by staff from Kusama’s studio in Japan. These spheres can be viewed in their current location at the Atlanta Botanical Garden from the Canopy Walk, and along many of the trails leading into and out of Storza Woods.
