Halloween Special: Louise Bourgeois
Last week I went to the late Louise Bourgeois' exhibition entitled 'Fabric Works' at Hauser and Wirth on Saville Row. It marks the last exhibition she worked on before her death in May this year. It showed 70 fabric drawings, most of which are labyrinthine formations representing spider webs and 4 large-scale sculpture works, which have never before been shown toegther. By the 1990's the use of fabric in her work became a more predominant entity:
“I always had the fear of being separated and abandoned. Sewing is my attempt to keep things together and make things whole”.
