Focusing on a signature phase of Louise Bourgeois’s oeuvre, this volume includes in-depth examinations of a selection of the sculptor’s "Cells" series while also studying the innovative series in its entirety. Six Cells from throughout the series are given close scrutiny, revealing the enormous diversity of Bourgeois’s vision as well as recurring themes of physical and emotional pain, voyeurism, integration, and disintegration. A section of color reproductions includes images and details of the entire series. Together with extensive essays on the Cells’ evolution and an interview with the artist’s assistant, Jerry Gorovoy, this volume offers a holistic appreciation of a crucial phase in Bourgeois’s highly influential career.
