Gallery Visit: Louise Bourgeois – A Woman Without Secrets, Edinburgh

I had been desperate to see this exhibition of work by Louise Bourgeois in Edinburgh, it took a lot of careful planning and child care juggling but was totally worth it and I am so glad I managed to see it.

This exhibition was an opportunity to see some of her most important work. It included a mixture of paintings, prints, sculpture and textile pieces, all if which were items produced towards the end of her life.

With each she explores what it is to be human, exploring the human condition and our interactions with each other, our relationships. Our precariousness within relationships and the balance of equilibrium that we all try to maintain.
