Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois

In the season of 2017, Kistefos-Museet presents the exhibition Human Nature: Doing, Undoing and Redoing by the internationally renowned artist Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010).

Louise Bourgeois is one of the 20th century’s most notable and influential artist. The exhibition gives an exceptional insight into her lifelong examination of fundamental human conditions, which most of us can recognize and will meet throughout our lifetimes.

The exhibition narrates the journey we all must undergo as our lives change and in different ways are torn apart – and how we thereafter grow back together again. Exactly like nature’s rhythm, where decay and amputation leads to regrowth and abundance.

The exhibition is curated by Luise Faurschou.
