  • Exhibition view. Louise Bourgeois. Memoria y arquitectura, 1999
    16 november, 1999 - 14 february, 2000

    Louise Bourgeois (Paris, 1911 - New York, 2010) defines herself as a fugitive who runs away from home, from the notion of home, both in the sense of place and identity. Even so, or perhaps because of this, all her life and work is generated from living spaces that she inhabits or her memory of them: her childhood in Paris, Aubusson, Choissy and Anthony, her country house in Easton (Connecticut, United States) and her studies in New York and Brooklyn. As noted by architect and teacher Beatriz Colomina, "those physical locations of her memory are all domestic and all associated with trauma." In this way, Bourgeois uses architecture, sculpture and metaphor as a means to analyse her troubled family past, looking to repair and reconcile it, like an effort to create her ideal family in the present.
