Yayoi Kusama sculpture to decorate Yuanlin station

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The Yuanlin train station in central Taiwan's Changhua County will feature a sculpture designed by famed avant garde Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama as part of the station's landscaping work due to be completed in June next year.

The sculpture called "Let's Go and See Our boyfriends in High Heels" will cost NT$6 million (US$196,200) and will be set up in a plaza in front of the new elevated train station, officials of the Railway Reconstruction Bureau told a press briefing Tuesday.

It will make Yuanlin the first train station in Taiwan to feature a Kusama sculpture, which will be installed along with three other major public artworks that will be added around the station by January 2016 at a total cost of NT$17 million, the officials said.

The 3.98-kilometer elevated section of railway that crosses Yuanlin Township is scheduled to open as soon as the end of October this year, according to the bureau.
