A few days ago I had the opportunity to see the Louise Bourgeois exhibition “Structures of existence-The cells”.
I have admired her for as long as I can remember, seen documentaries, read and tried to understand all the little details of art as psychoanalysis, the volume of her work it is impressive and seeing it in person has been truly a wonderful experience I am quite grateful for.
This is the only photo I took, honestly I do respect the rules of not photographing but I was also too busy taking it all in.
Still here are a few photos I found online of what I saw inside:
The cells represent different types of pain.
What touched me the most is that as you walk through the cells, it’s like walking into someone’s dreams, it’s so intimate,you can feel the fear, the anxiety the slow growth and coming to terms with things and to finally reach acceptance and forgiveness.
It was truly beautiful.
