With over 40 works, including some rarely seen in the UK, such as Lair (1962) and The Couple (2007-2009). Louise Bourgeois: Nature Study demonstrates Louise Bourgeois’ versatility, as well as the enduring emotive power of her art.

The exhibition brings together works on paper, paintings, textile pieces and sculptures made across the artist’s seven-decade long career, from a rare early painting, made in the 1940s, to examples of her iconic bronze Spider sculptures from the 1990s, and À l’Infini, a series of monumental works on paper that envelop and immerse the viewer, made during the final years of Bourgeois’ life. Spreading seamlessly from the galleries into the landscape, the exhibition will explore important themes within Bourgeois’ work including cycles of time and nature, landscape as a metaphor for the mind and body, and the importance of memory.
