Louise Bourgeois: Maman

Maman, Louise Bourgeois

I’ve always had a soft spot for Louise Bourgeois’ Maman, a giant spider commissioned for the opening of Tate Modern in 2000; less so for the show of Bourgeoise’s work, which closed 20 January.

This is from the same source as yesterday’s post on PhotoDJ; this picture has been processed in Picnik, chiefly using the rather lush Reala 400 filter in Curves.

  1. The same sculpture is also in Ottawa at the National Gallery of Canada.
    Are there 2 copies of it, or has it been moved ?

  2. My understanding is that the work was commissioned for Tate Modern and first shown in the Turbine Hall a few years ago. The recent exhibition marked its return to London and as the exhibition ended a couple of weeks ago it must be moving again, presumably back to Canada.

  3. There are six Mamans located at various galleries around the world. Seoul. Tokyo, Guggenheim in Spain,

    It has been exhibited at the Hermitage also. I believe one copy is in steel, the others are all bronze.
