Yayoi Kusama‘s work often obsessively repeats motifs such as patterns of polka-dots – for example the Obliteration Room in Brisbane – or the reflected lights in her new piece entitled “Infinity Mirror Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life”. The Tate Modern‘s new retrospective recognizes these signature themes in the 82-year-old Japanese artist’s work. Having lived as a voluntary resident in a psychiatric hospital for almost 40 years, Kusama creates work that completely envelops the viewer. The exhibition will run through June 5, 2012.
