Louise Bourgeois

untitled 2005
Louise Bourgeois was reportedly a notorious hoarder. The artist, who died this year at the age of 98, accumulated all manner of tablecloths, napkins, clothing and bed linens — a lifetime’s worth of material, really — which she began to cut up and reassemble into “drawings” in the mid-1990s.

Louise Bourgeois: The Fabric Works is an exhibition at the new Hauser & Wirth gallery at 23 Savile Row, London W1. The exhibition space is spread over 2 galleries with seperate entrances so don't miss seeing both spaces. There are over seventy fabric drawings made between 2002 and 2008. Curated by Germano Celant, there is a comprehensive publication to accompany the exhibition published by Skira. Closed Sundays and Mondays the show is on until 18 December.
