US artist Louise Bourgeois, who lived to 98, is best known for her bronze sculptures of gigantic spiders, which travel around the world from museum to museum. She left 70 years worth of work, an intricate exploration of intimacy and emotions, only receiving recognition for her work at the age of 70.
‘In my world, violence is everywhere. Since people don’t listen to you, you have to be violent.’ Louise Bourgeois.
Louise’s life and legacy will be the focus of a theatrical biography called Louis (e) to be performed at the theatre in February by local US-born actress Rachel Gordy – in English and French.
The play was written especially for le Grütli and expertly directed by Trisha Leys.
