A revelatory book, ‘L’araignée et les tapisseries’, is published in conjunction with the historic exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Zürich in mid-2014. Louise Bourgeois’s tapestry and needlepoint works are reproduced together with photographs and facsimiledocuments from the Bourgeois family archive. Excerpts from the artist’s psycho- analytical writings and diaries reveal the symbolic value of reparation, restoration and redemption, which lay behind this body of work.
