Louise Bourgious

“I make drawings to cancel the unspeakable. The unspeakable is not a problem to me. It is just the beginning of my work. Dressing is also an exercise of memory. It makes me explore the past: how I felt when I wore that dress. Clothes take the same function as road signs while looking for the past.”

One of the most inspiring and inspired exhibits I've visited.
So special to see this French artist's work while on vacance in Venice.
