|Louise Bourgeois - Untitled 2007 - seen here|
I can feel a trip to London coming on...I don't want to miss the inaugural exhibition at the new Hauser & Wirth gallery in Saville Row which is open from 15 October. The show, Louise Bourgeois - The Fabric Works, comprises of 70 pieces made between 2002 and 2008 along with four large scale sculptures. The drawings are made from the domestic textiles collected and hoarded by Bourgeois over her long life, and make reference to the family business in which her mother was an expert weaver and seamstress. I like this quote from the artist: ‘I always had the fear of being separated and abandoned. The sewing is my attempt to keep things together and make things whole’.
The show continues until 18 December.
