Louise Bourgeois: Structures of Existence: The Cells
HUMLEBÆK • Louisiana Museum of Modern Art • 13 October 2016 - 26 February 2017
The term cell plays on all the meanings of the word – from prison cell to monk’s cell to the smallest biological units of the body. Each work is an independent spatial unit filled with carefully arranged objects which in interaction with cell walls of glass, wire mesh or old doors create sensory, psychologically tense scenarios. As always with Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010), her personal history, pain and passion are the starting point for the works, which at a general level are about the familiar connection between body, architecture, objects and memory.
The exhibition occupies the entire South Wing of Louisiana and features 25 Cells on loan from collections all over the world as well as a selection of smaller sculptures, paintings and drawings.
