Over dit kunstboek
Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) was known for a highly personal body of work consisting of sculptures, installations, drawing and prints that deal with themes as memory, trauma, fear and hidden emotion.
Bourgeois explored an enormous variety of themes during her long artistic career including the body and sexuality, domesticity and the family, as well as the unconscious and death. She stated that these themes were connected to the memories of her childhood. In this matter she considered her art to be a therapeutic process. The works of Bourgeois have certainly things in common with the the paintings of the Abstract Expressionists and with themes of Surrealism and Feminist art. Though the artist was never affiliated with any artistic movement.
In this massive impressive title her vast oeuvre is interwoven with a fascinating discussion of the full range of ideas, emotions and experiences that inspired the creation of her work. Renowned critic and curator Robert Storr, acknowledged as Bourgeois's leading interpreter, presents in chronological steps and chapters the artist's career, weaving it also into thematic discussions. In the final chapter Storr discusses Bourgeois's artistic legacy.
