Description via The Guardian: “Louise Bourgeois: The Return of the Repressed, showcases the psychoanalytical musings of the late French sculptor alongside a selection of artworks. It takes place at the former home of Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis – where one of her signature spider sculptures has taken up residence in the back garden.
Intensely focused on psychology and the complexities of the family as an artist, Bourgeois undertook psychoanalytic therapy for three decades, though she kept that fact a secret. The exhibition is inspired by the discovery of four boxes of loose sheets in 2004 and 2010 that revealed it for the first time.”
