Artists Rooms - Louise Bourgeois

Part of the reason I was so excited to visit The Switch House was for the Artists Rooms series, currently featuring, Louise Bourgeois. (Hands up if you saw that coming, you get brownie points).

The Artists Rooms series of exhibitions from Tate and National Galleries of Scotland shows works in dedicated solo exhibitions and demonstrates the practices of these artists. Although aimed at the younger crowd, there is most definitely reason for everyone to visit these exhibitions given the chance.

I was delighted to see works from Bourgeois that I hadn't previously, and as always her works touched me and set my heart on fire, the cleverly crafted works that reference femininity and sexuality and the traditional view of women reminded me exactly why I create; sometimes that what we all need, isn't it?
