Description
Since the age of twelve, the internationally renowned sculptor Louise Bourgeois has been writing - writing and drawing. First a diary precisely recounting the everyday events of her family life, then notes and reflections. Destruction of the Father - the title comes from the name of a sculpture she made following the death of her husband in 1973 - contains both formal texts and what the artist calls "pen-thoughts": drawing-texts often connected to her drawings and sculptures, with stories or poems inscribed alongside the images. This book collects both her writings and her spoken remarks on art, confirming the deep links between her work and her biography and offering new insights into her creative thinking and process.
