On the artist, her life and work, and the experience of seeing

Claire-Louise Bennett speaks to Violet Lucca about Louise Bourgeois’s work and the process of free association she chose to document her experience of it. Bennett discusses what it means to regiment pain—the persistent subject of Bourgeois’s work, her “business”—to the demands of form in writing. She follows other threads of association that weave together the artist’s life and her own. Bennett’s review of Louise Bourgeois: The Woven Child and The Artist’s Studio: A Century of the Artist’s Studio 1920–2020 appears in the September issue.
