This will be the first museum exhibition in Israel of the work of renowned French-American artist Louise Bourgeois. The title of the show derives from a large-scale sculptural installation Bourgeois created in 1991, which was first presented in ‘DISLOCATIONS’, a group exhibition organised by MoMA. Consisting of two oil tanks, the sculpture is mechanised so that the smaller tank, moving on a track, travels perpetually in and out of the larger tank. For Bourgeois the continual expulsion and reacceptance of the smaller tank symbolised the complex relationship between mother and child. As Twosome attests, Bourgeois’s art oscillates between such dualities as abstraction and figuration, conscious and unconscious, pleasure and pain, architecture and the body, and revenge and reparation. Find out more about the Louise Bourgeois exhibition from the Tel Aviv Museum of Art’s website.
