Abstract

Sculpture portraits of American artist with French origin Louise Bourgeois (Louise Bourgeois, 1911-2010) is a unique phenomenon in the portrait genre history. Innovation is due to the interference with the sculpture portrait formal presentation, which eventually led to the significant expansion of the interpretation boundaries. Such sculpture constituents as material, method, demonstration principles were not only enriched by new means, but also to some extent undermined the sculpture traditional presentation. As material, Louise Bourgeois used pieces of fabrics (tapestries, personal things), which she sewed and created the head (sewed image). The author presented the portraits in an unconventional way to sculpture – she placed them in glass or wooden boxes vertically and horizontally (on side) and hung several pieces (two to five) to the exposition hall ceiling. All these methods for the sculpture creation and presentation require careful semantic analysis. Detection of such ambivalences as “up and down”, “vertically and on side” (demonstration angle), “cutting and sewing” (method), “pink and colourful” (fabric colour) makes it possible to establish the relationships and further defining their values and finally deep portrait interpretation.
