草間彌生*3へのインタヴュー記事にLouise Bourgeois*4が言及されていたので、メモ;

Yayoi Kusama was born in 1929 in the city of Matsumoto, in Nagano prefecture, where her middle-class parents worked in seed production. In a similar scenario to that experienced by the young Louise Bourgeois, the marital infidelities of Kusama's father had a lasting impact on his free-spirited daughter. 'My father had lots of lovers and I had to spy on him for my mother. Because my mother was very angry, it made even the idea of sex very traumatic for me. My work, including the naked happenings, is always about overcoming that bad experience. And my visual language all still comes from my hallucinations, which I have seen since my childhood.' (p.15)
