“Art is a guarantee of sanity.” Louise Bourgeois.
On Thursday the Year 11 and 12 Art students went to an exhibition of the internationally acclaimed sculptor Louise Bourgeois. It was a long journey to the Museum of Modern Art –Heide in Melbourne but all agree it was worth it to see the range of thought provoking and confronting sculptures on display.
A number of students remarked how seeing the work ‘live’ was a totally different experience to seeing it in a book or on the internet, and how her work will influence them and the way they see, make and interpret art in the future. We also got the opportunity to respond to her work in a visual way, each student producing a small work in reflecting their own personal experience.
