Yayoi Kusama has been working out her obsession with polka dots and infinity over a decades long career. Suffering from hallucinations and residing in a Japanese psychiatric institution, she uses art as a way to communicate her visions. For her current retrospective at the Tate Modern she has created Filled with the Brilliance of Life, her largest infinity room yet. Made up of hundreds of lights and mirrors, it must be dazzling to see in person. It will be on display through June 5.

Yayoi Kusama’s Mirror and LED Light Installations
"Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama - who has notably lived in a psychiatric institution for the last four decades - has been obsessed with dots and infinity for her entire career, an inspiration she attributes directly to her hallucinations. In an attempt to share her experiences, she creates installations that immerse the viewer in her obsessive vision of dots or infinitely mirrored space."
