Louise Bourgeois "Cell" - Twelve oval mirrors, 1998.
This sculpture is about the difficulty of communicating. It is about two people encountering each other, with this encounter watched by others. The mirrors did not give an exact reflection but a distorted one, reflecting yourself, knowing yourself, and liking yourself. We are all dealing with the difficulties of expressing yourself. We are all dealing with the individual versus society and how htis is played through the body. Louise Bourgeois, Aug. 6th, 2008
