Louise Bourgeois

Journal entries for my research on Louise Bourgeois. I prefer to use a hand written journal when researching artists so this will be how I record my research.

I was really surprised with the depth of engagement I had with Bourgeois’ work. I had heard of her, but I had never developed an understanding of her work. The videos by Tracey Emin really captured my attention in understanding Bourgeois processes and her personal expression within her work – this in particular grabbed my attention. I like that her work has a very delicate and perhaps an insecure connotation to it which I personally experience at times. I think this is why I felt quite a connection to her work as I feel that I experience similar things to her – depression, anxiety and simply trying to stay afloat in the society that we are forced to live within. I felt quite empowered and not alone fighting this world once hearing of her experiences. This is probably quite an in-depth assessment of her work but I felt rather propelled to make work in response to my own experiences.

Below is my referencing for this research, however I need to remember to leave space in my book for the ‘in text’ referencing. I have now written the ‘in text’ referencing into the space that I have in my journal.
