The sale is offering an impressive collection of works by Yayoi Kusama, known for her use of psychedelic colors, repetition and pattern. In 2012 Kusama exhibited at Tate Modern. Since the lat 70s Kusama has lived voluntarily in a psychiatric institution, a personal fact which is reflected in her work. She focuses on obsessiveness and escapism from psychological trauma. In her exhibit at Tate Modern, Kusama  shared her experiences through  installations which immersed the viewer in her obsessive vision of endless dots and mirrors. kusama
