Louise Bourgeois, I Give Everything Away at The Fruitmarket Gallery

Louise Bourgeois, I Give Everything Away at The Fruitmarket Gallery



Published on Nov 4, 2013
Exhibition 26 October 2013 -- 23 February 2014.

Louise Bourgeois is one of the greatest and most influential artists of our time. In a career spanning seven decades, from the 1940s until her death in 2010, she produced some of contemporary art's most enduring images, making sculptures, installations, writings and drawings which, in mining her own psyche, have entered the collective unconscious.

Bourgeois's work is personal yet universal, rooted in the details of her own life, but reaching out to touch the lives of others. This exhibition of work on paper presents some of her most intimate work, both drawing and writing.

The exhibition begins with a labyrinthine presentation of Bourgeois's Insomnia Drawings, a remarkable suite of 220 drawings and writings made between November 1994 and June 1995. Created in the suspended state between sleeping and waking, The Insomnia Drawings contain all the major themes of Bourgeois's work and reveal the close link between drawing and writing that is such a key part of her practice. Also in the exhibition are two suites of large-scale works on paper, When Did This Happen? from 2007, and I Give Everything Away, made right at the end of the artist's life in 2010. A mix of writing, drawing and printmaking, these large works are both haunted and haunting.

This exhibition complements a major ARTIST ROOMS exhibition of work by Louise Bourgeois on display at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art -- Louise Bourgeois, A Woman Without Secrets, Modern One, 26 October 2013 -- 18 May 2014.

Who I M, Interview with Charlie

Cha

It all began while working deep in character as Chase Alias on a series called What We Found on Craigslist...

So This is What I Found on Craigslist, Loneliness!

Chase is an Immersion Art character. Immersionism is a form of gonzo journalism made famous by Hunter S Thompson in his works such as "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". Immersion Journalism or Immersionism is a style of journalism similar to gonzo journalism. In the style, journalists immerse themselves in a situation and with the people involved. The final product tends to focus on the experience, not the writer.

Taoist Meditation, 2014

Some Taoists believe immortality is the attaining of spiritual freedom through effortless spontaneity and creativity.

Perhaps one of the best known Taoist phrases is, "To be is to do." Such a general phrase has many possible interpretations. Unfortunately, in the West, the most common interpretation is something like, "Don't bother doing anything." Rather than a philosophy of non-action, Taoism should be considered a belief of creative quietism. Lao Tzu advocated a life of action determined by modesty and individual conscience when he wrote:

The sanest man Sets up no deed, Lays down no law, Takes everything that happens as it comes, As something to animate, not to appropriate, To earn, not to own, To accept naturally without self-importance: If you never assume importance You never lose it..

What's with the macho erotic picture? I thought it was an article haha.

I feel strongly that people revert to non-doing, because they are overwhelmed by their conditions. At least, non-doing as compared to a healthy person who enjoys a good rest, every day. :-)

That's the exact point. Many confuse the ideas of Taoism. My beliefs are more along the lines of creation on a daily basis. Very Korean in practice. The image is from my Endogenous Series. Which is about
Mixing method acting with gonzo journalism which, is also called Immersionism. The emotions in the images are derived from within the process.

The capture is an amalgam between what was planned and what occurred. The series takes on many aspects of my life as an artist and an Immersionist

Assaf Koss Feb 2, 2014



Oh, so it's you, practicing Tao understanding. :-D Amusing idea. Cool.

Chase Alias Feb 2, 2014

It's not as much practice as attempted understanding of existing philosophy. And I'm not sure why it's so amusing. It's always so interesting to me how people seem to be so quick to snappy judgmental remarks without first researching the foundation or credentials upon which they are making these statements.

The very purpose of spirituality is self-discipline. Rather than criticizing others, we should evaluate and criticize ourselves. -Dalai Lama

Thanks for the compliments

The idea that critical thinking about others, somehow negates critical thinking about the self, does not sit well with me.

There is responsibility in sharing with others.

Chase Alias Feb 10, 2014 + 11

Exactly. People often think too critically of others in an effort to negate self reflection. The Dalai Lama says some trippy stuff
