I - Wordless admiration







The Louise Bourgeois retrospective.

Sated. Delighted.

I need to sleep on it, expect amazing dreams.




this is in the exhibition, but it's not my photo!







In the foyer, an 'Arena' TV documentary about Louise Bourgeois is on constant show. Sitting entranced before it for an hour, even after several foot-sore hours inside the exhibition, I suddenly noticed through the window beside me that the film was also being projected in mirror image on the brick wall of the balcony outside. So the blurry stills of Louise and her reflection are my snapshots of a reflection of her filmed image. Layers upon layers, as the exhibition shows layers upon layers of her long working life...

Oh, I'm so jealous - I've wanted to see her work for years. Thanks for sharing your photos, Jean!

oh jean, lucky you. they made me put away my camera halfway through, so I could not take away the fragments to share so effectively with others.

Wasn't it wonderful?! No need to explain, your photos capture it all.

PS, I saw, too late, your mention of me in a previous post. Thank you for this...

That second to last image is stupendous

TG, thank you, but it's a very easy thing to take a striking photo of. In the following post, I've linked to the Flick'r group where you'll see what I mean!
