The Self Obliteration of George Clooney

Couldn’t help but break my current radio silence with this little doozy. What you’re looking at above is a Kusama-ified George Clooney, who’s been ‘self obliterated’ by the Japanese artist for the December/January Art Issue of W Magazine. While Kusama reputedly had no idea who the star was, she covered him with dots anyway. “My idea is to send the message of ‘love forever’ to all the people in the world through the polka dots, which are all about the universe and human beings and living things” she says. “ Your sex, being famous, being a star has nothing to do with it.”

    Shame he hadn’t been Kusama-d sooner. I would have enjoyed the Wellington City Gallery’s exhibition of her work even more with George in residence!
