Louise Bourgeois: The Spider and the Tapestries

Text by Louise Bourgeois.

"Untitled" (2002) is reproduced from 'Louise Bourgeois: The Spider and the Tapestries.'Louise Bourgeois' tapestry and needlepoint work deals with reparation in both a literal and metaphorical sense. In many of the works, fragmented tapestries are pieced together and repaired to create new sculptural forms. The recurring practices of weaving, stitching and mending express Bourgeois' identification with her childhood and the family business of tapestry restoration. Coupled with the medium of tapestry, Bourgeois' recurring motif of the spider symbolizes her mother, a weaver, and fully explores the complex relationship between mother and child. This publication includes archival photographs and facsimile documents from the Bourgeois family archive, as well as excerpts from the artist's psychoanalytical writings.

"Untitled" (2002) is reproduced from 'Louise Bourgeois: The Spider and the Tapestries.'

"The unraveling of a torment: you have to begin somewhere: the color blue, the damage is repairable," Bourgeois writes. "I cannot throw it away because I do not want to put it on the back burner. It is worth saving. I have gone through this one hundred times + any piece of tapestry is worth (not saving, cherishing) result: mountains of unusable clothes, buried under torn clothes. I can’t renounce the past. I cannot, do not want to forget. imitation + homage to the mother." continue to blog
