Director of the Fruitmarket Gallery Fiona Bradley, introduces the Louise Bourgeois exhibition ‘I Give Everything Away’. Featuring a collection of drawings and writings from her ‘Insomnia Drawings’, ‘When Did This Happen?’ and ‘I Give Everything Away’ series, Bourgeois’s work explores ideas very personal to her, but are somewhat able to reach out to the audience as well.
Louise Bourgeois is a French-American artist, best known for her sculptural and drawing work. Bourgeois’s career spanned over seven decades, and has had great influence for many who work in the art world today. Much of her work is autobiographical, and stems from experiences in her childhood.
The exhibition is on at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, until the 23rd February 2014. It complements a major retrospective of Bourgeois’s work held by ARTIST ROOMS, at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Modern One, which is on until 18th May 2014.
