Description

It was only late in herlife that Louise Bourgeois was recognized as one of the greatest artists of ourtime. The art world’s grande dame and its shamesless old lady, spinningpersonal history into works of profound strangeness, speaks out with hercharacteristic insolence and wit, through the words of a most discrete,masterful writer. A phosphorescent poem-in-prose describing Bourgeois’s innerlife as only one artist regarding another can. From her childhood in France toher exile and adult life in America, to her death, through the moods, barbs,resentments, reservations and back, at full speed. “The life of Louise Bourgeois is rendered in ellipsis, quick brush strokes, and a mix of associations of ideas and of sensations waltzing with chronology. An highly original, sensitive text.” Libération “Jean Frémon brings Louise Bourgeois close into a fascinating and moving proximity.”   ArtPress “Jean Frémon is a wholly singular artist, a writer who lives in the radiant zone where poetry, philosophy and storytelling meet.”   Paul Auster “Like all the most urgent poetry, it is “fragile and momentary, but momentarily invincible.”   John Ashberry
