The Cells is one of the most innovative, revolutionary sculpture sets within the extensive oeuvre of Louise Bourgeois. Created during the last two decades of the artist’s life, The Cells are complex configurations of found objects, personal items and sculptural forms which feature an atmosphere brimming with emotional resonances. Placed inside a wide range of architectural containers that separate them from the surrounding space, these almost theatrical symbolic altarpiece beckon viewers to enter them or at least to peek at each scene from the outside. This publication is the most exhaustive study ever made of The Cells to date. It includes a complete catalogue of each of these pieces, which can be visited in the exhibition of the same name at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. It also reveals key elements in Bourgeois’ creative process, analysing her ideas on space and memory, the body and architecture, and consciousness and unconsciousness.
