From Louise Bourgeois

“Art is manipulation without intervention.”

“I am not what I am, I am what I do with my hands.”

‘There is something very special in being able to sublimate your unconscious, and something very painful in the access to it…’

“My childhood has never lost its magic, it has never lost its mystery, and it has never lost its drama.”

“My work disturbs people and nobody wants to be disturbed. They are not fully aware of the effect my work has on them, but they know it is disturbing.”

“Art is a guarantee of sanity. That is the most important thing I have said.”
