about the book

For over a decade, Hauser & Wirth has worked closely with Louise Bourgeois and the Louise Bourgeois Studio to produce a range of publications, from exhibition catalogs to artist’s books. Originally published as a limited-edition artist’s book in 2014, this trade edition of ‘Louise Bourgeois: L’araignee et les tapisseries’ reproduces the artist’s tapestry and needlepoint works together with photographs and facsimile documents from the Bourgeois family archive. Contextualizing the artist’s use of these materials, excerpts from the artist’s psychoanalytical writings and diaries reveal the symbolic values of reparation, restoration and redemption that lie behind this important body of work.

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.
