Summary "Insomnia has been a lifelong companion of Louise Bourgeois' night hours. Between November 1994 and June 1995, she committed to paper the thoughts, memories, and images that surfaced during her sleepless nights. The resulting 220 drawings are the quintessence of all the impulses, sources and motifs inspiring her work. This book shows the artist's mind at work : drawings and sketches alternate with poems and aphorisms in both French and English, interspersed with notes referring to the hustle and bustle of everyday life." - box
