Louise Bourgeois "Extreme Tension," 2007


This image is from a suite of eleven large-scale, mixed media panels titled Extreme Tension (2007), each paired with an excerpt from a text written by Bourgeois at a time she was undergoing intense psychoanalysis. Bourgeois experienced bouts of deep depression throughout her life that almost always manifested as physical pain in her body, including, as she wrote, in her “arms forearms hands fingers.” Although fraught with emotion, this composition of two extended arms could be interpreted as one’s reaching out for connection and stability with another person.

The Skateroom's Louise Bourgeois collection,part of a limited edition of just 100, was created in collaboration with The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
