A polka dot artist
Yayoi Kusama is almost 90 years old. After 30 years living in a psychiatric institution in Japan - as a child suffering from hallucinations, obsessive-compulsive obsessions and depression - and after at least two decades of anonymity, the Japanese artist is now considered one of the greatest figures in the contemporary world scene. The film develops between interviews with friends, collaborators, scholars and colleagues in the art world, and contains numerous excerpts from his diary and his letters, including those that he sent to the great American artist Georgia O'Keeffe when he was very young.
It may seem strange for a film to claim that an artist, who at various times has been called the most popular in the world and has set a record for the highest sum paid for a work by a living woman artist, is somehow underestimated. But "Kusama - Infinity" is a convincing case that the art world and the general public are still recovering the influence of Yayoi Kusama, the painter, sculptor and performer universally known for the "Infinity" mirror rooms.
