> DESCRIPTION

This exhibition looks at relationships between the art of Louise Bourgeois—represented here by prints, drawings and a sculpture drawn from local public and private collections—and that of ten Australian artists. These relationships range from the real (several of these artists met Bourgeois and many have had direct encounters with her work) to the imagined (for instance with Joy Hester, a contemporary who would not have known of Bourgeois), from those of direct influence or homage to those where the work shares a visceral intensity or plastic ambiguity. Many of the works are rooted in memory and emotion, with a core that remains indecipherable—they do not illustrate or explain.
