9781900828079: Louise Bourgeois: Destruction of the Father/Reconstruction of the Father: Writings and Interviews 1923-1997

"My goal is to re-experience a past emotion...to relive anxiety anxiety is a passive state, and the object is to be active and take control," stated Louise Bourgeois about her practice, which spanned more than 60 years and a variety of media. This beautifully produced, limited-edition book is a rare glimpse at over 40 of Bourgeois' works, mostly drawings from a private Swiss collection, which are richly reproduced and juxtaposed with excerpts from her journal. The diary entries highlight Bourgeois' method of mining her past as part of her practice, but the work itself draws heavily from an impressive breadth of historical and contemporary art. These works, produced from 1939 to 2002, also provide a new look at the evolution of one of this century's most important artists--who has stopped being innovative and inspiring to her peers. Her defiance in the face of all of twentieth-century art movements is legendary.

About the Author:

Marie-Laure Bernadac, formerly Curator at the Musée Picasso, Paris, is Chief Curator of Graphic Arts at the Musée National d'art Moderne (Centre Georges Pompidou).

From Booklist:

This elegant volume is the second book about Bourgeois to appear in recent months, evidence of a surge of interest that Bernadac succinctly describes as "inversely proportional to the neglect" Bourgeois suffered for decades. Bernadac, former curator of the Musee Picasso, offers convincing explanations both for the art world's persistent blindness to Bourgeois' startlingly original, sensual, and challenging sculpture and for the sudden recognition of its power, integrity, and courageous beauty. Bernadac successfully combines biography with criticism throughout this chronological overview, enriching the experience of viewing Bourgeois' art, from her highly symbolic works on paper to her newest work, the "cells," mysterious and dramatic large-scale installations. These daring works have occupied the indefatigable Bourgeois since she entered her eighties five years ago. Fiercely independent, adept at creating provocative abstractions out of myriad materials, Bourgeois is "unclassifiable" and profoundly compelling, qualities attributable, Bernadac believes, to Bourgeois' perception of art as fetishistic. For Bourgeois, the making of art is a magical and curative act, deeply emotional and erotic, thus resoundingly universal. Donna Seaman
