fabric drawings


I finally broke down and ordered this exhibition catalogue from the 2005 Louise Bourgeois exhibition at the Kunsthalle Vienna. It arrived last week, and is so fantastic. It includes her fabulous fabric books Ode à l'oubli, 2004 (Ode to the Forgotten) and Ode à la bièvre, 2002 (Ode to the Bièvre), made from the scraps of everyday life ~ and these fantastic fabric drawings (above) from 2003 and 2005. I think they look like webs for her giant spiders!

It's been awhile, but now I'm all caught up on jcb's life.
These remind me of the simple yet sometimes complex feel of minimalist works.
which I love.
