Louise Bourgeois dessins et sculptures en tissu
La galerie Xavier Hufkens, Bruxelles, présente un ensemble d’œuvres de Louise Bourgeois. Notamment les dernières œuvres en tissu de l’artiste cycle que Louis Bourgeois avait amorcé dans les années 1980.
« For Louise Bourgeois, fabric and sewing held great symbolic significance. Born into a family of tapestry restorers, she was surrounded by textiles as a child, and was witness to her mother’s constant efforts at conservation and repair. Bourgeois also helped in the atelier, drawing in the missing parts of tapestries that needed reweaving. The artist came to associate sewing with reconstruction, reparation and reconciliation. In contrast to her earlier bodies of work, in which aggressive acts of separation, like cutting and carving, were predominant, Bourgeois’s late work focused on joining elements together, a restorative act that helped to dispel anxiety and her life-long fear of abandonment. »
Du 11 septembre au 31 octobre.
