Louise Bourgeois @ James Cohan


岳陽路のJames Cohan Galleryにて Louise Bourgeois*1を観る。彼女の晩年のエッチングとドローイング、そして林天苗と胡暁媛という2人の中国人アーティストによる彼女へのトリビュート作品を展示。
彼女の追悼記事であるHOLLAND COTTER “Louise Bourgeois, Influential Sculptor, Dies at 98”*2に曰く、

Ms. Bourgeois’s sculptures in wood, steel, stone and cast rubber, often organic in form and sexually explicit, emotionally aggressive yet witty, covered many stylistic bases. But from first to last they shared a set of repeated themes centered on the human body and its need for nurture and protection in a frightening world.
