Yayoi Kusama Video: The Polka Dot Queen Stars In Nowness Short (VIDEO)

When it comes to an artist as idiosyncratic and colorful as Yayoi Kusama, a straight-laced interview just doesn't seem quite right. That's why we're obsessed with this Kusama-centric short from Nowness, which is inflected with all the electric eccentricity of its subject.

"Tear down the gate of hallucination," the video begins, embarking on a psychedelic journey through Kusama's work and mind. Watch the hyper-saturated short above and for more things Kusama, check out our interview with the Japanese artist here.
