Louise Bourgeois, conscious and unconscious artworks
The imagery in her work was wholly autobiographical and a form of catharsis. Her art went across sculptures in a wide range of media: unique environments, or ‘cells’, in which she combined traditional marble and bronze sculptures alongside the everyday objects imbued with a strong emotional charge (furniture, clothes and empty bottles); prints and drawings; and hand-stitched works made of fabric.
Pierre Gonard’s portraits are compared with paintings by great masters of painting such as Veermer, Caravaggio or Velázquez. His photographs are large format and with a dark, neutral and abstract background with the intention of eliminating the context in which the image is captured. His works are almost always close-ups of unknown characters that border on marginality.
Mourad Merzouki, one of the best and most innovative choreographers in Europe, defies the laws of gravity and challenges his dancers to conquer the vertical. In a spectacular flight of adventure and passion they explore space, plunge down to earth and rise again, searching for lightness and discovering weightlessness.
