【Isabelle Arsenault插畫繪本】Cloth Lullaby: The Woven Life of Louise Bourgeois



This item is currently out of stock. It will take up to 3 ~ 4 weeks to ship.

Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010) 為美國的現代藝術工作者。他擅長使用多元素材-木頭、金屬、石頭作大型雕塑。我記得10幾年前在哈德森河岸上游Dia: Beacon將廢棄餅乾廠改建為美術館開幕的展覽就請到Louise Bourgeois的900多公分高的大蜘蛛。嘿嘿!  這是解釋為什麼餅乾廠荒廢的原因嗎?當然不是,餅乾廠因為80年後紐約一帶的工資驟增,許多哈德森河沿岸的工廠為提升營運成本效能,多遷往美國中部。但是蜘蛛佔領廢棄的餅乾工廠影射資本市場的變遷這個抽象概念也夠諷刺。 

Just as spiders spin and repair their webs, Louise’s own mother was a weaver of tapestries. Louise spent her childhood in France as an apprentice to her mother before she became a tapestry artist herself. She worked with fabric throughout her career, and this biographical picture book shows how Bourgeois’s childhood experiences weaving with her loving, nurturing mother provided the inspiration for her most famous works. With a beautifully nuanced and poetic story, this book stunningly captures the relationship between mother and daughter and illuminates how memories are woven into us all.
