Je t’aime, 2005 is a work by Louise Bourgeois composed of 60 drawings and is part of the exhibition To Unravel a Torment, Louise Bourgeois, patent in Serralves.
Of the 60 drawings, 2 give rise to a tribute to Bourgeois' connection with textiles, always present in her path as one of the base materials for her artistic creations.
Louise Bourgeois, was one of the most emblematic artists in the history of art for the greater 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.
