“My childhood has never lost its magic, it has never lost its mystery, and it has never lost its drama.” - Louise Bourgeois, sculptor, painter and performance artist
Over half a century into her career and approaching 100 years of age, French-born visual artist Louise Bourgeois continues to defy categorisation. Known for her large-scale works - like her famous spider-like sculptures - Bourgeois's output is prolific, inspired and occasionally disturbing.
In this intimate film, co-directors Marion Cajori and Amei Wallach peel back the layers of a magnetic and mercurial woman, allowing a privileged glimpse into the psyche of a unique talent.
