Passionate Louise (via)
From Cut in Two:
A Conversation Between Louise Bourgeois and Cheryl Kaplan.
“Bourgeois’ sculptures and installations use hooks, guillotines and sculptural incisions as flaying devices related to a disruptive past. Bourgeois uses events she saw as a young girl during and after WWI when large numbers of men returned from battle as amputees. Body parts are frequently the subject of her work. ”
The Walters Art Museum and the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore will present Louise Bourgeois: Femme, an exploration of the artist Louise Bourgeois’ fascination with the female form through a groundbreaking “intervention,” on view Feb. 11 through May 21, 2006 at both museums.
