​Feel the intense, psychological impact of Louise Bourgeois at Perth Museum & Art Gallery

Often autobiographical, Bourgeois’s works explores themes such as birth, childhood, death, love, loss and fear. Although her career spanned seven decades, she was most prolific in later life when Bourgeois (1911–2010) created the famous spider sculptures that helped her become one of the most recognised artists today.

Motherhood, femininity and the human form loom large throughout these works drawn from the ARTIST ROOMS collection. The driving force behind her work remained the exorcism of her childhood trauma and through sculpture and drawing, she continually retold and reworked the memories and stories that shaped her life.
