Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child

Edited with text by Ralph Rugoff. Text by Lynne Cooke, Rachel Cusk, Julienne Lorz.

Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child

Late textile works by the artist who helped pioneer the sculptural use of fabric in art

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the fabric works from the last two decades in the career of legendary artist Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010). “I’ve always had a fascination with the needle,” she once said, “the magic power of the needle. The needle is used to repair damage. It’s a claim to forgiveness.”
This body of work began when the artist started incorporating clothes from all stages of her life into her art, and later expanded to include a range of other textiles such as bed linen, handkerchiefs, tapestry, and needlepoint. The fabric works mine the themes of identity and sexuality, trauma and memory, guilt and reparation, and serve as metaphors for emotional and psychological states.
The catalog—which accompanies the exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, London, and the Gropius Bau, Berlin—features works from numerous series, including the monumental Cell installations, figurative sculptures and abstract drawings.

Anna Souter

These late works by Bourgeois show how the same things can appear both monstrous and endearing in the same moment.

'Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child' is NEW from Hatje Cantz

“Eugénie Gradet” (2009) is reproduced from Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child, the highly anticipated catalog to the exhibition currently on view at the Hayward Gallery, London. A comprehensive overview of the artist’s late textile works, this volume digs deep. “Sewing, for Bourgeois, goes beyond restoration on a material level,” Julienne Lorz writes. “Instead, it is a metaphor for psychological repair and for exploring the complexity of human relationships. In her artworks, ‘repairs’ remain visible, becoming conspicuous scars. Sewing becomes a subtle form of communication and an attempt at atonement, where the gesture and labor involved can evoke complex feelings—among them guilt and gratitude—in another person. For Bourgeois, the act of reparation was a defense against fragmentation and disintegration, and sewing a way to ward off feelings of abandonment or separation—an attempt to keep things whole.” continue to blog
