Fifty works from more than sixty years of creative art-a new presentation of the fascinating oeuvre of ninety-two-year-old Louise Bourgeois.
Born in Paris in 1911 and a New Yorker since 1938, Louise Bourgeois has created a unique oeuvre that owes no allegiance to twentieth-century "isms" in the course of a career spanning more than sixty years. Her art is grounded in her own life and experience: "My goal is to re-live a past emotion. . . . to re-experience fear. . . . Fear is a passive state, and the goal is to be active and take control." Yet Louise Bourgeois did not create an autonomous universe as an artistic hermit. While her art is nourished by personal experience, it also draws from art and art history-a wellspring of inspiration from which she developed her themes, concepts, and approach to media in both two- and three-dimensional works. Her rich and fascinating oeuvre is the subject of this publication, which presents more than fifty works from sixty years of creative activity in impressive full-color illustrations. Most of the works featured here are from the Daros Collection in Zurich. Exhibition schedule: Daros Exhibitions, Zurich, March 13 - September 12, 2004
