Louise Bourgeois in de Rijksmuseumtuinen

Metershoge spinnen, kolossale ogen en hangende spiralen in de monumentale vleugelnootboom.

Dit voorjaar presenteert het Rijksmuseum Louise Bourgeois in de Rijksmuseumtuinen. Het is voor het eerst dat een ruime selectie van Bourgeois’ buitenbeelden bijeen wordt gebracht.

Met twaalf beelden toont het Rijksmuseum een overzicht van een halve eeuw werk, van The Blind Leading the Blind (1947-49) tot Crouching Spider (2003). Veel van deze werken zijn nooit eerder in Nederland te zien geweest.

Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) geniet internationale faam als een van de belangrijkste vrouwelijke kunstenaars van de twintigste eeuw en werd wereldberoemd met haar monumentale beelden van spinnen.

‘Spiral’ new book by Louise Bourgeois

In materials as diverse as wood, steel, bronze, latex, marble, plaster, resin, hemp, lead, ink, pencil, crayon, woodcut, watercolor and gouache, Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010) investigates every imaginable manifestation of the spiral, from graphic patterns to graphite whorls, wobbly orbits to chiseled vortices, twisted columns to coiling snakes, staircases and pyramids.

The cursive blue-paper word drawings also included, in English and French, complement the purely visual works by conveying the spirit of Bourgeois’ writing in extraordinary pictorial forms.

Bourgeois called the spiral “an attempt at controlling the chaos. It has two directions. Where do you place yourself, at the periphery or at the vortex?”

In another context, she has also stated “I would dream of my father’s mistress. I would do it in my dreams by wringing her neck.

The spiral—I love the spiral—represents control and freedom.”
