A giant pumpkin and 15 limited edition prints by renowned Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama will be on display at Ocean Terminal until the end of this month.

Dots Obsession - Soul of Pumpkin is Kusama's first solo exhibition in Hong Kong.

The exhibition is divided into three parts. The first is the Giant Pumpkin Outdoor Installation in the Ocean Terminal forecourt. It features the largest pumpkin outside Japan, measuring 4.2 metres high and 5 metres wide.

By climbing into the pumpkin, visitors can see a different side of Kusama's art. The forecourt has also been decorated with polka dot motifs and three giant balloons.

The second part is the prints exhibition in the Gallery by the Harbour. Fifteen of Kusama's prints are on show and for sale. You can also buy one of 1,000 'Yayoi Kusama X Harbour City Special Limited Edition' box sets for HK$280.

The last part is the guided exhibition tour. Harbour City will arrange four tour sessions on Saturdays and Sundays, from 3pm to 4.30pm. Up to 15 people can attend each tour session, which lasts for about 45 minutes.
