Fantastic reality : Louise Bourgeois and a story of modern art by Mignon Nixon( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The art of Louise Bourgeois stages a dynamic encounter between modern art and psychoanalysis, argues Mignon Nixon in the first full-scale critical study of the artist's work. A pivotal figure in twentieth-century art, Louise Bourgeois (b. 1911, France) emigrated to New York in 1938 and is still actively working and exhibiting today. From Bourgeois's formative struggle with the "father figures" of surrealism, including Andre Breton and Marcel Duchamp, to her galvanizing role in the feminist art movement of the 1970s, to her subsequent emergence as a leading voice in postmodernism, this book explores the artist's responses to war, dislocation, and motherhood, to the predicament of the "woman artist" and the politics of sexual and social liberation, as a dialogue with psychoanalysis." ""Fantastic reality" is what Bourgeois calls the condition of her art. Starting from Bourgeois's investigation, through a multiplicity of forms and materials, of the problem of subjectivity on the very threshold of emergence, this book argues for a new psychoanalytic story of modern art."--BOOK JACKET

Art city by Chris Maybach( Visual )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many artists use the pain, exhilaration and resolution of private desires to express themselves in their art. This documentary focuses on intense personalities who've used their art to explore the emotional impact, or dark humor of psychological truths. The film also plumbs issues that affect artists -- preoccupations of startling universality -- like community, motivation and controversy, finding one's audience, and just 'getting it right'."--Back of container

Louise Bourgeois : Konstruktionen für den freien Fall by Christiane Meyer-Thoss( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in German and English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ich will nicht schockieren, ich will genau sein." Das Geheimnis der Bildhauerin Louise Bourgeois manifestiert sich am deutlichsten in ihren eigenen Worten. Louise Bourgeois ist die Übertreibungskünstlerin in persona, beinahe eine Pop-Ikone - ihre Komik und Gelassenheit sind hart erarbeitete und durchlebte Zugaben, die sich mit Verzögerung einstellen und ihren Werken Grösse und Glanz verleihen. Das vorliegende Buch der Bourgeois-Pionierin Christiane Meyer-Thoss ist ein Reprint. Es umfasst eine Einführung ins Werk, Auszüge aus den Gesprächen mit der Künstlerin und zahlreiche Zitate. Die Publikation würdigt die intensive Zusammenarbeit der Autorin mit Louise Bourgeois, deren internationale Rezeption damals erst noch bevorstand. Unter anderem entdeckte die Künstlerin in kontinuierlichen Gesprächen mit Christiane Meyer-Thoss, danach mit anderen Autoren, die Eloquenz und Schlagkraft der bündigen "quotes", ihrer "Standpunkte", für die sie später bekannt wurde: "Mein frühes Werk ist die Angst zu fallen. Später wurde daraus die Kunst zu fallen. Wie man fällt, ohne sich zu verletzen. Noch später - die Kunst, auszuharren."

Louise Bourgeois : an unfolding portrait : prints, books, and the creative process by Deborah Wye( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait' explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010). Bourgeois's printed oeuvre, a little-known aspect of her work, is vast in scope and comprises some 1,400 printed compositions, created primarily in the last two decades of her life but also at the beginning of her career, in the 1940s. Over the course of her career, Bourgeois constantly revisited the themes of her art, all of which emerged from emotions she struggled with for a lifetime. Also, she said there was no rivalry between the mediums in which she worked, noting that they say the same thing in different ways. Here, her prints and illustrated books will be seen in the context of related sculptures, drawings, and paintings, and within thematic groupings that explore motifs of architecture, the body, and nature, as well as investigations of abstraction and works made from old garments and household fabrics.
