Thursday 23 January 8.30pm Channel 039

Kusama - Infinity explores Yayoi Kusama’s radical artistic vision and fierce determination to become a world-renowned artist. At 89 she is celebrated for her colourful polka-dot motifs and her immensely popular Infinity Mirrored Rooms. However, her critical and commercial success comes after decades of struggle against a traumatic upbringing, lifelong mental illness, a conservative Japanese art world, along with racism and sexism in the West. Filmed for more than a decade, Heather Lenz’s debut documentary shows how Kusama overcame countless odds to create a legacy of artwork that spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installation art, performance art and poetry. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.
