Corkboard Placemat Gift Set X Louise Bourgeois

$44.00 USD

Description
Set of four cork board placemats featuring works from Louise Bourgeois's textile archives. Fabric played an important role in Bourgeois's life. She grew up surrounded by the textiles of her parent's tapestry restoration workshop, and from the age of twelve helped the business by drawing in the sections of the missing parts that were to be repaired. A life-long hoarder of clothes and household items such as tablecloths, napkins and bed linen, from the mid-nineties Bourgeois, cut up and re-stitched these, transforming her lived materials into art. Through sewing, she attempted to effect psychological repair: "I always had the fear of being separated and abandoned. The sewing is my attempt to keep things together and make things whole."

About the Artist
Louise Bourgeois was a French-born American artist who gained recognition late in her long career. Throughout her life, she created many psychologically charged abstract sculptures, drawings and prints. She lived until the age of 98. Third Drawer Down first collaborated with her in 2008 for a retrospective at the Tate Museum.
