Pink Days and Blue Days
is a sculpture
made from found objects
that hang from a ten-foot-tall steel armature
. Louise Bourgeois included items of her childhood clothing which she hung from animal bones. A silk coat is embroidered with the nicknames that Bourgeois was given as a child: “Louise, Lise, Lison, Lisette, Louison, Louisette.” Each piece of clothing that Bourgeois saved had memories for the artist. The objects on the lowest part of the sculpture include a silk handkerchief and an empty perfume bottle.
