Louise Bourgeois Just Like Me 2007

  • Not on view

Anxiety, fear, jealousy, and anger can affect the body, and Bourgeois expressed these tensions through imagery of bones, muscles, intestines, and bodily fluids. "With emotions there is always the physical reactionthe heartbeat, breathing, perspiration," she said, but also "paralyzing fears" and "somatic ailments."
