Tracey Emin on Louise Bourgeois: Women Without Secrets

Tracey Emin ci accompagna in un viaggio personale alla scoperta dell’opera di Louise Bourgeois. L’autrice dell’enorme ragno in bronzo è stata per Tracey Emin una delle più importanti fonti di ispirazione. Seppur appartenenti a generazioni diverse, le due artiste hanno stretto un forte sodalizio personale e creativo, realizzando a quattro mani una serie di stampe completata qualche mese prima della morte di Louise Bourgeois avvenuta nel 2010, all’età di 98 anni. Guidandoci attraverso le sue opere, esposte alla Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art e alla Fruitmarket Gallery ad Edimburgo, Tracey Emin racconta l’irripetibile esperienza condivisa con la grande artista scomparsa.

Tracey Emin offers a uniquely personal insight into the life and work of one of the most pioneering and influential artists of the last century. Louise Bourgeois came to prominence in the UK with her giant spider sculpture. Her art was a great inspiration to leading British artist Tracey Emin. The two artists, separated in age by half a century, became close friends and in the last years of Bourgeois' life they began a creative collaboration that resulted in a series of remarkable prints, completed just months before Bourgeois died, aged 98, in 2010. Taking us on a personal tour of Bourgeois' work at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, Tracey Emin discusses Bourgeois' art, their friendship and the experience of working with the great artist.
