"My emotions are inappropriate to my size. So they bother me! And I really have to get rid of them," reflected Louise Bourgeois when interviewed in 1999.
Born in 1911, the sculptress has only achieved major international recognition for her work in old age. In the nineteen-eighties she was elevated to the ranks of our best-known contemporary artists. Like ancient sites that were deserted many centuries ago, her sculptures and installations evoke the transitory nature of things, but at the same time seem familiar, like the recalling of a dream. There is hardly any material the artist has not worked with and mastered for her art: bread and saliva, feathers and cloths, steel and bronze, marble and stone, latex, plaster, wood and glue.CD mit BookletISBN 978-3-88030-041-517,50 EURsofort lieferbar
