Art of the Day: Louise Bourgeois, Untitled (2002)

  May 10th, 2011



       Louise Bourgeois
       Untitled, 2002, fabric & steel sculpture

      She wants you to come closer. Not so she can trap your skull like you think (& secretly hope). But so that her device will enclose her own head with a harsh & final clang, just as you open your mouth to speak.

      In this way she will fully wall herself off from you when you are closest to being delivered from the pain of your unbearable loneliness.

More early 2000 Bourgeois stitchwork here.
