Notice Regarding Yayoi Kusama's


Benesse Art Site Naoshima is pleased to announce that Yayoi Kusama's "Pumpkin," the outdoor sculpture displayed at Benesse House Museum that had been damaged by Typhoon Lupit last August, had been newly created and exhibited at the same location as the original work on October 4th, 2022, following repeated discussions with all relevant parties.

Kusama's "Pumpkin" had been installed on an old pier jutting out into the sea, creating a scene unique to Naoshima that stands out against the blue sea and green trees in the background.

Please refer the following blog for the background of the installation of the pumpkin, which has become a symbol of Benesse Art Site Naoshima, and the relationship between the artist Yayoi Kusama and Naoshima.
