Japanese Advertising: Nissan Laundry Soap. Hiroshi Ohchi. 1954
The spider, a complex representation of motherhood, has been a recurring motif for Bourgeois since the mid-1990s. The spider is fiercely protective and productive, as well as being a predatory creature. In her work, the spider can appear as threatening and vulnerable. In “Spider”, the creature has ensnared another recurring motif in Bourgeois’ work: the cell. Lending itself to numerous psychoanalytic interpretations, the cell is representative of imprisonment and repression, and yet it can also be understood as a quiet, solitary thinking space.
