The human being has always looked for a way to let off steam, to be able to express, in one way or another, all that he carries within him and that he needs to be able to communicate. Sometimes the audience is his family or his friends, other times it’s strangers, and often it’s himself: And while a part of him tells him that as long as he does his job, or once it is finished, you will find the answer to your concerns that he wants

Great creations are often the result of a difficult childhood or life, as happened to the contemporary artist Louise Bourgeois. From now on, and until September 4, you can see part of his work at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. To help you understand her and, by the way, to begin to surprise you, we have attached some images of her works.

Had one of the most influential modern artists, and no es para menos: su obra, al estar inspired en los miedos e inseguridades que tuvo Durante la niñez, tienen nail strong emotional charge this becomes apparent as soon as one sees her, and that, in spite of everything, one says that she has always been joyful and lively.

With them, he intends to build architectures in which he can evolve, made up of doors, metal gratings or windows loaded with strong symbolism. The house, for example, was a recurring element: it was presented as a place of protection, but also as a prison. Out of curiosity, it must be said that the woman was synonymous with the home. Bourgeois supported the feminist struggleand this is something that manifested itself during the years 1946-47, in his canvases “Femmes Maison” exhibited in Paris.

In addition, he has experienced a lot of human emotions, and especially the one that makes us most uncomfortable: fear. For her, fear was synonymous with pain. A pain that can be physical, mental, psychological or even intellectual. No one ever gets rid of it or, rather, sometimes throughout their life, so we all want to avoid it or at least know how to deal with it. While some choose to write a novel, avoid that situation they don’t like, or go for a walk, very effective ways, by the way, to calm down and calm down again, Bourgeois chose to use it to create sculptures and designs.

A very original way to make what they see identify with you is, of course, to put something that identifies you, be it your style, the design you have created,… or incorporate personal items into your work. This is what the artist did, who kept photographs, letters, clothes,… even her diaries where she wrote down everything she saw and did during her childhood. As she said herself:I need my memories; are my documents“. And what better way to remember the past than by going back to see, touch, take what belongs to that time to feel again the emotion you had in the past. Although, yes, if you were to go through bad times, it might be best to forgive the past in order to continue your routine in the present.

Las Celdas, an exhibition on view until September 4 at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, was created towards the end of the artist’s life, at the age of 70. These creations present two totally different worlds: an inner world and an outer world which, combined, make the viewer feel a kind of emotion, which will probably be accompanied by reflection. Indeed, the work of Bourgeois invites you to thinknot only of the sculpture itself, but also of our own existence, of our own world.
