Louise Bourgeois works take up two floors of the
new Art Gallery of NSW spanning all seven decades of the iconic French–American
artist’s career. More than 120 pieces are presented in two sections, “Day” and
“Night”. The former is a broadly chronological sequence from early works to
late, including her 1940s wooden Personage sculptures, drawings, watercolours,
embroidery and fabric works, latex and plaster and large-scale sculptures in
bronze and marble, while the latter – in the underground Tank gallery –
combines works of all periods.
