!! OMG, POLKA DOTTY: Yayoi Kusama’s “Infinite Obsession” !!

Ahead of over a years worth of Central and South American retrospectives Marc Jacobs collaborator Yayoi Kusama speaks about going to the doctor having suffered from a sense of self obliteration since childhood which caused a lifelong obsessive compulsion with painting her famous dot motif.

“It is clear that she has deep psychic wounds, but also that her work sustains her and keeps her going.” __Deputy Chief Curator of MALBA, Philip Larratt-Smith

Kusama has been voluntarily living in a psychiatric clinic in Tokyo since 1977.
