Lot Essay

'I worship transparency. I search for transparency. You see, there is no mask in my work... I am perfectly at ease with language... I learn your language, you learn my language. In the end it does not matter, because the language of the eye, the intensity of the gaze and the steadiness of that gaze are more important that what one says. Language is useful but not necessary. You cannot fool me in the visual world, but you can get the better of me in the verbal world' (L. Bourgeois, interview with P. Herkenhoff, R. Storr, P. Herkenhoff & A. Schwartzman (eds.), Louise Bourgeois, London, 2003, p. 8).
