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

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 507 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."--Jacket

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 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Louise Bourgeois : An Unfolding Portrait' explores this celebrated artist's prints and books, a little known but highly significant part of Bourgeois's larger practice. Her copious production in these mediums - addressing themes that perennially occupied her, including memory, trauma, and the body - is examined here within the context of related sculptures, drawings, and paintings. This investigation sheds light on Bourgeois's creative process, which is uniquely and vividly apparent through the evolving states and variants of her prints; seeing these sequences unfold is akin to looking over the artist's shoulder as she worked. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, this catalogue features an insightful essay by curator (and longtime friend of the artist) Deborah Wye, examining Bourgeois's involvement with these mediums alongside the developments of her long life and career. Interviews with three of the artist's close collaborators further illuminate her artistic practice and output, some three hundred examples of which are presented in this volume

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 223 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."
