Jean-François Jaussaud – intimate portrait Louise Bourgeois
22 April 2022 - 18 June 2022
Jean-François Jaussaud draws an intimate portrait of Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010, FR/US). A major artistic figure of the 21st century, she was a visual artist, sculptor and painter.
Jean-François Jaussaud met the artist in New York. A first photo session in April 1995 gave way to many other encounters during the last 11 years of the artist’s life. In her Brooklyn studio or in her Chelsea home, Jean-François Jaussaud manages to capture Louise Bourgeois as she is: mischievous, joyful, invested but also unpredictable. He lets himself be impregnated by the atmosphere of the house, “her cell, her theater” and is free to circulate in the middle of her studio-laboratory, a battlefield filled with memories. The photographer observes the artist at the heart of his work and offers us a portrait full of accuracy. They will meet for the last time in February 2006.
The exhibition occupies the 2nd floor of Hangar.
Jean-François Jaussaud (1961, FR) lives and works between Paris (FR) and Brussels (BE). Biography
