Description

Bourgeois was involved in her family’s tapestry restoration business from a young age, when she was tasked with drawing in missing or worn areas of tapestries that needed repair. Her mother Joséphine, a skilled weaver, managed the workshop and spent hours in the sun reweaving old textiles. Bourgeois remembered her this way decades later, around the time she began to explore the spider motif. For her, the spider was symbolic of both her mother and of her own working process. The spider weaves its web diligently and without complaint, much like her mother calmly repaired broken things and made them whole.

The Artist

Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois, (b. 1911, Paris, France; d. 2010, New York, USA) used the body as a primary form to explore the human condition. From poetic drawings to room-sized installations, she physically manifested her anxieties in order to exorcise them. Memory, love, fear, and abandonment are at the core of her complex and renowned body of work.
