Louise Bourgeois by Makhi Xenakis
Book Description'When I asked Louise if she wanted me to go back to her childhood haunts and photograph them, I never imagined the extraordinary adventure into which this would plunge me. In this book I have tried to describe, step-by-step, how, from a small gesture of friendship and nostalgia, I came to feel that I had been thrown into Louise's memory and into the heart of her work, through the complex mysteries of the creative process' - Makhi Xenakis. Tracing a path through Louise Bourgeois' memories, Makhi Xenakis guides the reader through the places that marked the artists childhood and formed her spirit, taking us back to France, to Louise's school and family homes. The book, which is published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, also reproduces vintage photographs and sculptures from the Bourgeois archives. These images, together with Xenakis' reflections on the way in which Bourgeois past has informed her work, make this book an essential read for all lovers of this distinguished artist, as well as anyone with an interest in contemporary art.
