Alex Van Gelder: Mumbling Beauty

2 Oct 2016 – 1 Jan 2017

To coincide with the ‘Louise Bourgeois. Turning Inwards’ exhibition, a presentation of portraits of Louise Bourgeois taken by Alex Van Gelder will be on view in the Implement Shed. ‘Mumbling Beauty’ is a portfolio of photographs taken of the artist in the final years of her life (2008 – 2010). At Bourgeois’ invitation, Van Gelder photographed her at her home, either going through the motions of her daily activities, or acting out various emotive states for his camera.
