‘Untitled’, 2001, is one of a suite of seven heads, each unique, made from a soft pink material, originally one of the artist’s jackets. Autobiography and identity have been important influences on the artist’s practice, as have her family connections with furniture and tapestry making. The steel and glass vitrine is an integral part of the sculpture, which Bourgeois described as a cell. It mimics a Museum display case, acting as support to the disembodied head.

About the Artist

Louise Bourgeois 1911–2010

Born in Paris, artist Louise Bourgeois moved to New York in 1938. Over a career that spanned seven decades, Bourgeois built up a complex body of work, primarily in sculpture, but also including drawing, painting, printmaking and installation. Autobiography and identity have been important influences on her practice, as have her family connections with furniture and tapestry making. Bourgeois was the first woman artist to be given a retrospective at MoMA, New York in 1982. Her celebrated project ‘I Do, I Undo, I Redo’ was created for the Turbine Hall to mark the opening of Tate Modern in 2000. Bourgeois’s ‘Stitches in Time’ was held at IMMA from November 2003 to February 2004. — View Artist »
