Silk Eye Mask Louise Bourgeois
The eye mask is the perfect solution for a peaceful rest.
On one face the mask has a black and white drawing of Louise Bourgeois' eyes. On the other, a design inspired by her drawings.
The rubber band reads “solution to insomnia: peace or trust”, taken from the back of one of Bourgeois's insomnia drawings, which was made during the night in an effort to find sleep.
The reversible design echoes one of the artist's 2003 fabric designs, and pays tribute to the artist's connection to textiles, sewing and her love of fashion.
Louise Bourgeois, was one of the most emblematic artists in the history of art of the great part of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century.
The artist focused mainly on sculpture, creating biomorphic forms and the early use of unconventional materials that allude to a tension between essentially male and female forms.
The recurrent interrogation of the male/female dialectic aligns Bourgeois with the feminist movement.
The geometric forms had a calming and meditative effect on the artist: their possibilities and repetition had a therapeutic power, as did the reticulated compositions. Having suffered from insomnia throughout her life, the artist often occupied her sleepless hours drawing, working both day and night.
